Flower Fest and Circles!

This is SO out of my element.  Not the layering or the cutting out of the flower but the circles "thing."  Though I do like the results of it.  I did try to do a card with punched circles before and just struggled SO much with it that I became frustrated.  This card was not frustrating to do.  I had a bunch of flowers and leaves cut to with that out of the way the rest of it is suppose to be easy or easier, right?  Well, it was easy but yet not.  

All I knew about the outcome of this card was that I wanted the rose and leaves to be on the edge of a circle and the circle would have words stamped on it.  I got the words, the circle, the rose and the leaves.  Now how to arrange them so it doesn't look silly or like you just stuck them there because you didn't know what to do with them?  I finally got that flower circle done and then it started all over again.  What to do with the rest of the card.  I actually thought of just leaving the flower circle and calling it done.  But it looked to blah.  It needed more.  SO I mustered up some courage and a few circle punches and then scrounged around for some paper to work with.  I ended up using some decorative paper pieces from the Subtles decorative paper pack.  And a piece of Cherry Cobbler.

I punched out some circles and moved them around on the card.  Layered them.  Took layers off.  And then played around with them on the card front a bit more and this is what I came up with.  I actually think I like it!  Shocker!!  I know!! LOL

My biggest problem with this card was the bottom part where it was so open.  After I added a piece of ribbon the card just all of a sudden went together!  Imagine that. I could have saved myself a half hour if I had just added that ribbon on right away!!! UGH!

SO this is the card I came up with and I am pleased with it!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
