Its Friday!

*Don't forget about the Sunday Sketch you have today and tomorrow to link your card to me, if you want a goody.  Scroll down a few posts to see my sample and a bigger image of the sketch.

So Chris had sent me some Primas that she picked up from convention and she stamped off a few images for me so I thought I would put them to use >"<
This first card, I made right after the circle card below it.  I was still inspired by circles and had this image in my head, using Fantasy Floral Garden from Flourishes.  I just stamped some of the flowers in different spots at the bottom of the circle to make it kind of seem like a flower garden.  I colored the flower in using Copic markers, then went over them with Prisma pencils and a black micron pen.  I layered the circle onto a black circle, black really makes a card pop try it you will see >"<.  I couldn't figure out where I wanted the circle, I just didn't want it centered, so I put it on the side and then trimmed the part that was hanging off.  I layered the Primas and attached them together with brads, I didn't want the brads to go through the card, so I put a glue dot on the back of them and stuck them to the card.  The black and green ribbon are May Arts.  If you cannot find May Arts ribbon in your area, Flourishes ( www.flourishes.org ) sells all of the May Arts ribbon you see me use, they are a little boutique they have more than just stamps.
This card is for today's limited supply challenge on SCS.  You couldn't use patterned paper, not a lot of embellishments, and a limit of 3 layers.  I so achieved this.  Chris stamped a few of these chairs off for me {she is the best} and I love them!  To make a circle card, super simple.  Fold your card how you normally would, and then with whatever you are using to make your circle like a coluzzle, cm cutting system, nestabilities, You need to leave part of the fold in tact, so you put your circle a little over the edge of the fold, then cut away.  
The card stock is all from PTI, summer sun, berry sorbet and stampers select white.  The image is colored in with copic markers and the ribbon is satin summer sun. 
I hope you all have a fabulous Friday!  I am off to go teach a stamp class, wish me luck >"<  I don't know any of them.
