Circle Flowers

Happy Friday!
I hope your week has gone well! I needed a quick birthday card and somewhere I remembered seeing a card with circles for flowers and thought that would be fun. And most everyone has circle punches (or dies). So I picked some different colors of card stock and punched out all the circles in different sizes. I think the largest is 1 1/2" and the smallest is 1/2". I could have used circle dies, but my trusty old punches were feeling neglected. The leaf is also a punch and the stems were made by just trimming some strips.

When I attached all the circles, I purposely had the centers a little wonky...I thought it just added character. The white background was embossed with a honeycomb pattern and I only used a portion of the Wordy Birthday Greeting. I love that greeting because you can pick & choose what parts you want to use (if you don't want the whole thing) and the fonts are all different. I ran out of the green card stock I used for the leaves, so I used a couple of green Copics to color the edges of the largest layer. 

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great weekend! If you haven't, be sure to check out the DRS Thursday Challenge...this week, it's Over the Top (have your greeting on top).
