Less is More wk 24... Circles

Good Afternoon All!

I hope I find you all fit and well. I would like to say a very big welcome to my new followers and also a massive thank you to all of you that commented on my last LiM post about comments. I feel so much better now that I know that I`m not the only one struggling to get around everyone.

It`s theme week at Less is More and we`ve been asked to make a card using circles (plural). Gosh did I struggle. I don`t possess one circle stamp, I`m ashamed to admit. This is something that I`m going to have to rectify. I really couldn`t come up with an idea at all, creative block or something. I asked Alan and came up with alsorts of wierd and wonderful suggestions, one being the Olympic badge which I immediately cast aside.It must have stuck in my head though because this is what I eventually found myself making.

I know the Olympic badge has 5 circles and my card only has 3 but it does bear a slight resemblance.
I cut the circles using 4 nestie circle dies one inside another to make the 3 frames in Burgundy, hot pink and a paler pink card.
The flower is made of pink paper using a Marianne designs Rose die. I`ve added a pearl and some punched leaves.
The sentiment is computer generated.
Sorry the pic is a bit wonky, blame my terrible photographic skills.




Thanks for popping in... Lynne xxx
