Freshly Made Sketches #186 & Happy Little Stampers CAS May Challenge

Another card for more than one challenge today, Freshly Made Sketches #186  and the Happy Little Stampers CAS May Challenge  This is the card.

And here are the challenges

First I made my plain white card blank and cut a panel smaller out of white linen card-stock and cut a strip of patterned paper from the Avery Elle, 'Every Day Collection' and also punched out a circle from it.  Next, I punched a smaller circle from white card-stock, die-cut a quatrefoil border strip - sorry, I can't remember who it is by - and mounted it on to the linen panel on the diagonal.

Next, I mounted the smaller circle on to the larger patterned circle, off centre, then mounted that on top of the border strip.  Then I stamped the sentiment banner with the Clearly Besotted, 'Mini Basic Banner' and cut it out with the matching die and mounted it on foam tape to the front of the circle.

I finished the whole thing off with a part of the 'La La Land' 'Berry Flourish' die cut (the whole thing would have been too big), I only wanted to accent my focal piece and not overpower it and added a few black gems for balance.

Then I mounted the whole panel on to the base card, with some craft foam.  Here are the rest of the pictures.

As always, you all really make my day with your visits and sweet comments.  Thank you so much!  Have a lovely day!  Hazel xx
