Penny Black Circle Challenge

 Found some inspiration on the Penny Black Blog for circle cards and this is my attempt at one.

The layers of the card are cut out of antique linen white card stock using the Silhouette and adapting one of the patterns from the online store.

The card base is just a large scalloped circle. The next layer is a circle border that has a straight inner edge and a scalloped outer edge. This was colored with Broken China distress ink. Then I stamped parts of the lace-edged stamp all around the circle and embossed it. A little more color was added to the edges with wild honey distress ink. Then it was applied it to the card base with foam dots for dimension.

The floral image was stamped and embossed with white ink and white embossing powder and colored with distress inks. A little shading was added using a white prismacolor pencil. This layer was placed on top of a scalloped piece of white card stock and color was applied to the edge using distress ink.

Added the sentiment from PTI, a few pearls and some embroidery floss. The floss was white but I colored it with the wild honey distress ink . The colors would probably be a little more vivid on a different card stock but I like the linen texture this card stock provides.

The weekend is coming up but I will be working tomorrow. Hope you have wonderful plans for something fun!
Thanks for stopping by! I appreciate it so much
