Just Add Ink's 70th Round Challenge

This week over at JAI the challenge is to create a round card.  The inspiration sketch we got for the card was this one -

I've not done many round cards before so thought I'd give it a go and as Noah has a 4th birthday party to go to for a little girl Hannah who loves pink and all things flowers.  We thought these colours would be about perfect for her.

I used the scallop circles nestabilities to cut out the circles, then scored the top back one to make sure the card would stand up. I found a coordinating paper (brand unknown) and then just kept adding bits until I was happy.  The owl is the Stampin Up punch which I have decided is one of the most versatile punches ever made.

The nest is made using the Stampin Up bird punch leave and again I've added crystal effects to the number to make it stand out. 

Cheers Julie
