This is my submission for Flourishes Noon Time Challenge : The Round Challenge. We are being challenged to use a circle as the base of our cards and the rest of the design is up to us. If you would like to join us and be in the running to win some of Flourishes great stamps, you can find out all the details HERE.
Strangely enough, I actually had a hard time trying to figure out how and what I wanted to do for my card. But after some thought I decided to make it neutral so it wouldn't look too busy, focusing on the image and sentiment.
I used Flourishes "Let's Have Tea" teapot and stamped a sentiment from "Lenten Rose" over it, then sponged in "Antique Linen" around the edges. I'm using Flourishes "Classic Ivory" cardstock and a piece of Basic Grey paper that I cut with a Tim Holtz Rosette die to create the scalloped rosette under the image. I used Spellbinders Scalloped and Classic Circles to cut out my image and give the base the scalloped circle shape.
