Circles

Marie is hosting for us today at Crafty Cardmakers & More, and she has chosen 'Going Round in Circles' as her theme.  
Circular cards or at least one circle (of an obvious size please, buttons DO NOT COUNT) on your project and two fab sponsors again this time in Hobby Art Stamps and Di's Digistamps.
 
Shaped cards are a little out of my comfort zone but I have recently tried to use the Grand Nesties which have been gathering dust in the drawer and make some different shapes.

I used ivory linen textured card as the base and lightly sponged the inside of the nestie with Crushed Olive DI - this colour was the nearest match to the green card which I had laid out ready for the layering.

The papers are from the Botanical pad by Prima and were just saved snippets from a larger project.
Layered them onto the green and stitched together then added some cream vintage lace andstitched it all onto the base card.
Cream seam binding for the bow and glued the lovely rose cameo in the centre before adding the two pearl pins.
The sentiment was stamped using the same DI onto a scrap of the same paper and tucked behind the lace.
