Anything goes /circles My Besties UK DT Card

I had such fun making this one up..The theme was circles so circles it is lol..I coloured the lovely image in with Polychromos Pencils on Neenah card..The papers I have used are Papermania Happy Birthday to You ..They are so pretty colours and I thought they just suited this card so well ..and of course the large dots on the papers convinced me even more lol..I first drew around the inside of the die to be able to cut around the girls bow and the bunny etc..then I cut out a load of circles in craft card using the Tonic Basic scalloped circles,I then hand drew and cut around the inside of the relevant circles in the various coloured dot papers,then the fussy cutting began as there was no other way as I could not put my hands on my plain circle dies grrr!..But I think it was worth it..Once all circles were glued in place I arranged them on the card but felt it needed more and then added an extra green square ,this seemed to unite the card together ..It is hard sometimes ,you see it in your head ,and on the paper its not quite right ..but this simple square corrected that ..whereas years ago I would have probably thrown it away because it was not working ,now I try something else.I try to explain my workings as not every one who visits is an expert I am not ,but I have learnt by trial and error ..never give up .To finish and decorate I added some odd buttons I thought it was a nice change from flowers and goes with the card theme and image so nicely too ..Thank you for visiting :)
