Well, I hope you enjoyed our month of collaboration with some of the other great challenge blogs out there! We're back to taking things solo, but if you hadn't ventured out before to some other challenge blogs, remember there are just so many out there, ready to inspire!
This sketch is super simple! There's really nothing to measure. Start with your basic card base, pick what kind of image you want to put in the circle, then find a circle punch or die to fit the image. Easy! Here, I actually have a little tip. I didn't feel like cutting out the sunflower or masking (since that required fussy cutting too), so I took an exacto knife and cut along the flower in 2 spots, just big enough to slide the leaf in behind the main image. It worked great and it was really quick! I was quite happy with it, since it gave that extra bit of dimension without the work.

Supplies: Stamps: Simple Sunflower, Signature Greetings
Ink: Summer Sun, Chocolate Chip, Vintage Cream, Ripe Avocado
Paper: Ripe Avocado, Chocolate Chip, White
Accessories, etc.: Epoxy Dome Sticker, Ribbon, Scalloped Circle and Regular Circle Die As always, if you play along, feel free to leave a link to your creation!

Great tip for skipping the fussy-cutting. Love the colors, too.
