Pear Tree Designs Challenge 31 - Circles

Morning everyone, I hope you are all having a lovely day!

Today is my 1st post being on the Design team for Pear Tree Designs.
This week were going to be going round and round in circles!
This week you will be in with a chance of winning a Goody Bag from Donna!!

Here is my DT card for the week, I hope you like it!

I used my Nestabilities to cut all the shapes used on this card.

The Card I have used some I received when I purchased some popcorn the bear stamps (quite a while ago), its from crafters companion and is a pearlescent pink.

The scalloped circle is from papers I won on a blog hop just before christmas, I must say you don't see the beauty of the paper as most of its covered, it has flowers all over and it sparkles too!!

The image,called 'bride and groom and available from mo's digital pencil here, was printed from my computer onto high gsm paper, I then used a dabber to add the pink from a cats eye chalk.

The paper flower has been cut using the smallest scalloped circle in the nestabilities set from white tissue paper (approx 8 single layers), I placed a brad through the middle and scrunched it up, I did place a small rhinestone in the middle but you cant see it! I know for next time that its not worth it.

I finished the flower off with some stickels on the edges.
