Circle Circus meets Pocket Silhouettes

Hi There!!!

I've been playing with my lovely new goodies again tonight and have come up with another card t show you. This one combines Circle Circus (yes the one that caused so much excitement in this post) and Pocket Silhouettes.

Now... I saw a card similar to this somewhere out there in BLOG LAND, and do you think I can remember where!!!! Nope... soooo if this is similar to something you've posted on your Blog, please let me know so I can figure out where I saw it and give due credit. (It wasn't made with Pocket Silhouettes though, I don't think!!!) - sitting here biting my lip!!!!

Anyhoo... here is my card:-

I've used Kiwi Kiss as the base and layered it with some Kiwi Kiss DSP from the Good Morning Sunshine Pack, some Whisper White Cardstock and some Riding Hood Red, which I've stamped with a stamp from Circle Circus in Versa Mark and then Clear Embossed with my Heat Tool, oh and that piece has been scalloped with my Scallop Edge Punch.
I then used Riding Hood Red and Pink Pirouette to stamp the image from Pocket Silhouettes and the sentiment from the Level One Hostess Set 'Best Yet' is stamped in Kiwi Kiss. Add to that some GORGEOUS Satin Ribbon (Kiwi Kiss/Very Vanilla) and a Kiwi Kiss Button from Button Bouquet (SU!)...mmm... a few dimensionals and that's it.

I've managed to make that sound like I just whipped it up in no time at all.... not the case... I sat here procrastinating for a while, trying to figure it all out, but I'm pretty happy with how it turned out.

I'll be back soon with more to show you.
Thanks for stopping by.
