TSG160: Circles! And a zoo-per birthday card!

Oh my poor neglected blog! I even have a backlog of un-shared cards, but I just haven't been very good about getting the posts written. But I was so happy to play along this week for the very first time with the There She Goes Stamps challenge TSG160 - incorporate circles into your project design! I just got my first order of TSG stamps recently and let me say that I love them! I already have a growing wishlist.

For this card, I used Zoo-pendous... how cute are those little zoo animals?? I stamped the peacock, snake and giraffe using masking, and then cut them out with a Spellbinders circle die and colored with Copics. I used the Spellbinders Lacey Circle die as an accent behind the focal point (half-circles!). More circle shapes are found in the PTI Summer Sunrise polka dot paper, the PTI circle-shaped Tiny Tag, and the teeny scalloped border.

The circle focal point is popped up on the 5.5" square card base.

Thanks for the fun challenge, TSG! I can't wait to break in some more of my new stamps! And thanks for stopping by!
