Bliss ......

I hope you are all having a great weekend so far. It was such a beautiful sunny day today but that wind was freezing! I think it's going to be a great ski season this winter.

While blogger was down last night I decided to try out a 'new to me' sketch challenge that I had jotted into my note book the other day.

This sketch comes from Diva Coffee Break Designs. I turned the sketch onto it's side because I really wanted to play with my Bliss stamp set. I had to move the circle because it looked a bit funny on top but other than that all the design elements are still there from the sketch.

Here's the sketch -

Here's my card -

the inside's kind of plain but I thought I'd show you anyway :) Now that I look at it again, I think I might 'stamp off' the flourish a couple of times so it's really faint and stamp it into the middle to dress it up a bit. What do you think?

By popular request I'm hoping to have a tutorial done in the next few days for my free standing flower pot card that you can see here and here.  Make sure you check back for it!

Thanks for stopping by!

I like this one and your circle works perfectly where you placed it. Into my CASE file it goes (if that's okay).
