TOMIC Challenge # 9 - make a round card




Hi everyone, I hope you enjoyed the weekend. A new challenge starts today on TOMIC and this week our theme is to make a round card. There's some wonderful inspiration from my design team friends, we hope you can join us and be in the with the chance of winning a gorgeous prize from Magnolia and being one of our top 5. 

I'v cut my round card from watercolour paper and continued my painted scene with Magnolia Explore Tilda right to the edge of the card where I've added a rainbow of eyelets all around the edge :). There's lots of stardust stickles and the 'wishing you rainbows..' sentiment which is now my favourite as it can be used for so many occasions. 

Have a lovely day today :)

I nearly fell of my chair when I saw this at the TOMIC challenge! Beautiful in ever way! Once I caught myself, I then wanted to reach out and touch that grass. You have created a very serene scene with the watercolored sky and perfectly round creation! TFS!
