Magical Monday - Lace & Circle

This week's challenge over at TMITA/PCC is to use any acquired image from Paper Cupcakes and to use a circle (image in a circle or sentiment in a circle) and some lace (either paper punched or real). I used my image in a circle and and used some red lace my mom gave me (thanks mom!). I really wanted to use this image "Perfect Friendship" and so I did. I knew right off I wanted it to be really colorful, because I had this sentiment that I wanted to use with it. I made my own template for this card and this will have been my forth card made with it (hopefully I will post the others this week). I colored the image with my Bic Mark-its and inked all the edges with a variety of cats eye chalks. I made my lollipop flower and added Stickles to the edges. I also ran some thread through the lace and gathered it and just built it from there. The punch is Martha Stewart and I bought this primary colored paper stack this week. I always seem to want some primary colored pp, but don't really have any. DCWV has a lovely one and it will work so nicely for my boy layouts, kid cards and some brightly colored card like this one.







Well, that's it for me for today! Hope you had a nice Valentine's Day, I certainly did!! Thanks for stopping by and double thanks if you left me some loving comments!! Have a colorful day!!

You always manage to create such vibrant fun cards Nina! I don't think I'm bold enough to incorporate all these gorgeous colours into one card - but you are and it works so beautifully!
