GS33 - Hello Circles

Sketch #33 from the Get Sketchy site is very different - almost scared me away completely but I am a brave girl so I soldiered on - Instead of layering up with circles onto a background I decided to dive down -
Used my Nestabilities Classic Circle dies to cut ALL the circles at one time - did you know I am not only brave but efficient also? Then I added some texture with the Cuttlebug D'vine Swirl embossing folder. I wanted the emphasis to be on the tiny sentiment (A Muse Monogram Frames clear stamp set) so I put a layer of vellum between the kraft and patterned papers.
A little PTI satin ribbon brings balance and finish - VOILA! Do you see Lily in the background? She is always on high alert for squirrels - don't know what she would do if she ever caught one but she is forever hopeful!
