Going round in circles!

Hello Blogland :)

I'm feeling very guilty about how badly I've been neglecting you but my energy levels are so low I'm wondering if maybe I should be taking iron tablets! Seriously, just getting to work in the morning is such an effort these days, I'm so glad it's sunny today, I think the winter has just been too long this year.

So it's taken me a few nights to complete this project using the sketch from Mojo Monday this week & the theme of circles from Cupcake Crafts. This card meets the 'Anything Goes' brief over on Lexie'Remove formatting from selections creations too.

I used lovely wild asparagus papers & "Tilda Wrapped" coloured with Inkadinks & Distress. To make the background I masked off Tilda & sponged distress ink over the image & then overstamped with a text stamp using the same ink. I was inspired to use this technique by Dena's fabulous vintage card here.

I hope you enjoyed looking at my creation, please tell me what you think!
