Pinteresting Circles....

I told you I love the idea of using pinterest for inspiration for challenges - thanks to Daring Cardmakers for the genius idea - so I'm back with a second entry for their challenge, this time combined with this weeks' Less is More challenge which is "circles".   When I was looking at cake yesterday, this photo was very appealing but lost out to the cherry blossom so I was thrilled that I could use it today.  If you're not sure what pinterest is all about, check out the daring cardmakers post - you'll all NEED a pinterest board if you haven't got one already but beware - its addictive!

I just loved the colours, the different patterns on the cake pops and the interesting photo angle. For my interpretation however, I went for straight lines as the diagonal didn't really work on a card.


This was a super simple card to make - and very quick - which is good as I am due to meet my friend in time at 10.30 so only had an hour to play and get ready this morning.   I cut circles using the smallest nestie I have from DP from a very useful stripes and spots stack by Crafts Too and arranged them in an overlapping double border.  The sentiments are both from Waltzingmouse - from the "say it loud" and "frame it" sets.

I'll be back to look at everyone's cards when we've done shopping - our husbands birthdays are both next weekend so we always go shopping together for them.

Have a good weekend.
