Tuesday Throwdown Challenge # - Circle Card

Round and Round is this week's theme for Tuesday Throwdown Challenge # 285.  That means we are looking for circle cards.  Our fabulous sponsor this week is Lacy Sunshine Stamps, who generously supplied TT Design Team B with a variety of images to use.  I chose beautiful Emily - English Rose Melancholy Moppet.

Heather Valentin, designer of Lacy Sunshine Stamps,
has a wonderful collection digital stamps.  You must wander over and meet Eleanor and Pickles, all the Melancholy Moppets, 

Rory and the Sweet Urchins, The Boos, The Buggmee's, Sticky Wings, Stitches and so many more.  Also available on the site are links to the Blog, Lacy Sunshine Crafting Magazine, HV's Online Art Classes and Lacy Sunshine on FB.  The Lacy Sunshine Blog has bi-weekly challenges, featuring very talented designers who supply recipes for coloring the images they've used.  
In fact, I'm going to enter this card in the current Lacy Sunshine March 6th Anything Goes Challenge.  
I hope you'll take some time and visit Lacy Sunshine Stamps, the Lacy Sunshine Blog, and Tuesday Throwdown Challenge Blog.  My teammates have created fabulous circle cards to get your creativity rolling.  We can't wait to see your entries and visit your blogs.  The winner will be receiving their choice of Lacy Sunshine Images.

For my card I used the CTMH Artiste Cricut Cartridge to cut the circle card base.  I sized my digi image and used a La La Land stitched circle die to cut it and also cut a smaller stitched circle in blue.  The butterfly die, separated into 2 pieces on the card, was a freebie from recent craft magazine.  I used Spellbinders beaded circle dies for the yellow dp circles and a circle punch for the white circle.  The Lacy Sunshine digi image was colored with pencils and blended with gamsol.  The overskirt also has a layer of CTMH fine prisma color glitter.  The stamped sentiment, silver butterfly puffie, and clear gems are all CTMH products.
Finally, the assembled card (and my left hand) got a fine spray of Frost Shimmer Spritz.

I am submitting this card to these additional challenges:
Sparkle n Sprinkle March Challenge -  Anything Goes with Glitter, EP, or Flock
Crazy 4 Challenges #347 - Circles and/or Pies
Di's Digi Designs Challenge - Lots of Layers
