Black & White Floral Circle.


Hi everyone, it's time for another challenge at Seize the birthday.
The optional toppings theme this time is black and white,


or, as always, you can play along with the anything goes birthday option.


I diecut this circle burst and taped it down onto a matte black layer.
I diecut an extra circle burst from black pearlized card and used these pieces to inlay into the white circle. Here's a closer look.


You don't want to lose any of the tiny dots!!

I diecut and shaped two Memory Box cherry blossons and layered them up for dimension.

The design team have lots of wonderful cards to inspire you, so I hope you can play along.

I'm linking up to these challenges:

CAS on Friday where it's a birthday theme.

For your blog

At Simon Says Wednesday, it's my favourite, anything goes!

It's also anything goes at Addicted to Stamps & More.


Edited to add: I'm also linking up to the CAS Mix Up Card Challenge
where dimensional diecuts are the theme.

My elements are dimensional diecutting with the cherry blossoms shaped and layered up, diecutting, stamping and wet embossing.


Supplies:
Dies: Memory Box small circle burst and cherry blossom.
Stamps: Happy Little Stampers doodled flowers sentiment.
Other: versafine ink & clear ep.

Thanks for visiting,
