Layout and a circle card


I made this card yesterday for the skech challenge on SCS.  I changed the sketch from a traditional card into a circle card, but kept the main sketch elements.  I cut and scored it like normal, but then I got a big circle nestabilitie put it a little over the score line and then ran it through my cb to cut it.  Because I was using a thick card stock it embossed it too at the same time I cut it.  The dp is from the Honey Pie line from Cosmo Cricket.  I doodled along the edges just because lol.  The little bird is a snag-em that Chris sent me, that I colored in with Copics.  I didn't have a sentiment to stamp that I liked, so I just wrote "so tweet".
The layout is for todays Ways To Use it challenge WT170, and you needed to use a photo in a card, layout etc.  So I did a layout.  I used a sketch {from snowchris on scs} so it made it faster for me to do.  The dp is from the Lily Kate line from Basic Grey.  The stamps are from Flourishes, Fantasy Floral Garden and Flourished Elements, and again I used the cute little birdie stamp.  The scalloped black ribbon is from May Arts.  
Everyday SCS has a new challenge, I like doing them because it gives me a starting point for the day.  
Off topic, but please keep your thoughts with the families that lost their boys in the tornados yesterday.  My son is a cub scout and has gone of several camping trips, and I cannot imagine what those parents are going through.  So terribly sad.

I could have cried when I heard about the tornado tearing through that boy scout camp. I cannot imagine what they must all be going through right now. So tragic, horrible, and completely awful. It's hard to comprehend.

Your layout is just gorgeous! I love it. The card couldn't be any sweeter! It is so tweet! Love them both!

It IS sad, it makes my heart break for those families....I don't know what we have done to make Mother Nature mad, but it was something big!!

Your layout is fabulous, I just love this - but the card, aaahh, the card is TOTALLY ADORABLE...I love that it is round and that sweet little image it stinkin' cute!
