Blues and greens

The background paper is an offcut from a Basic Grey 12 x 12. - I chose this because it has a green distressed look, but, unfortunately, it doesn't show up well.

The two circles were cut on my cricut (from offcut pieces), and then embossed using the Embossalicious floral vine folder with my eBosser. The outer circle was sanded to reveal the white core of the DCWV card that I used and the inner one was brushed with broken china distress in. It's quite difficult to see the effect of this on the photo, but looks better in real life.

The rosette was part of a set from Poundland and the two flowers from Hobbycraft. This is an 8 x 8 card as the circles are quite large. I rounded the corners to fit in with the circles theme.

This is for:
