TLT - Circles, Pink, Chocolate MICHELE Style

Hey, hey - that's MY challenge!

The other Ladybugs know how much I dislike choosing a challenge, so I threw together some of my fave things and called it a challenge.  :D

This week, the TLT gals are making creations with Circles, Pink and Chocolate - it can be a round card, a circle on a square card, circles in your DP - doesn't matter, we're easy to play along with ya know!

And remember last week when I made these tags:

I used ONLY the balloons from Birthday Cake Robyn. I loved coloring them; I cut one set of balloons out completely using a craft knife to cut around the strings and the other image, I cut out just the balloons - lots of dimension in the balloons! I also added a thin layer of glossy accents to the balloons.

Well this week I used the same image, Birthday Cake Robyn, but this time I used the whole image for another round card.  I LOVE round cards! I used two nesties for the front and back and then offset the scallops when I put the card together - love how that looks.

Yeah, just tilt your head sideways - it'll all line up for ya!  :D

I included a little snapshot of the inside - the pink paper has scallops along the top also.

DP is My Mind's Eye - OF COURSE - also used lots of Chocolate (fat free is good eh?) and pink. I paper pieced each of the balloons, I sponged the cream circle with VersaMagic Pixie Dust and Pink Petunia, colored Robyn's crown with a glitter pen - she's queen for a day, much like me on my birthday - and finished it up with a fun sentiment on the inside.
