Circles and words

For this card I started with the Paper Artsy Sentiment - I love this sentiment as it is too easy to get caught up in life and forget the little things, especially the little things that make you smile;)  I stamped this onto a white postcard using Archival Sepia, I then cur the sentiment out using spellbinders teardrop circles, I then used old paper distress ink to colour, leaving the die in place as I did so.

Then from a free paper with a magazine I used Marianne designs doily die to frame the original circle and then mounted the lot onto a 7Gypsies paper - the pad I have had since Adam was a boy I'm more than sure.

Hope you like it.

So great to have you join us at Inkspirational this week Jax! You are right about that sentiment being a good reminder. I like how you distressed the sentiment circle, leaving the scalloped edge clean. Great card!
