This card totally took me out of my comfort zone. I've never made a circle card, and honestly I'm not sure I like it. I wanted to give it a try because they look so pretty and dainty. But the circle cards I seem to be drawn to are those with sentiments on them only and not with images.
I also used paper in my "Ewww, what were you thinking?" stash. (We all have one of those right?) I seem to have more of that than I care to admit. So I promised myself that the next card I made to use something from that stash. So the fact that I don't like the paper is throwing me off too. Oh well, they can't all be winners. LOL
This is CC Designs, Cherry Emma and she is just darling! Both Emma and the stump are digi images and I knew right away that I wanted to cut her out and use pop-dots to give it depth. I added Stickles to the cherries and Shimmerz to the tops of the mushrooms.
