Circles sketch

I saw this sketch on SCS Sketch Challenge 380 on Wednesday morning and since then my mind was occupied thinking of what papers I could use for this layout! When I started making this card it was more challenging than I thought it would be since all the layers and colors had to match well. I must admit that I spent a lot of time trying to gather and match all the patterned papers I wanted to use. I also discarded 2 of those after I cut the circles since the patterns didn't gel well. Here is what I finally put together -

Old World card stock for background
Colorbok card stock for largest circle
K&Company papers for smaller circles & background band
K&Company dimensional  flower &  butterfly

I used my new EkSuccess circle scissors for the first time today! Cutting circles is a piece of cake now :) I placed the paper on a glass mat and then placed this tool on top. What I like the most about this tool that you can cut a circle from any section of the paper and you can check before cutting if the circle is going to cut the expected area on the paper.

Let me know if you like this design! Thanks for visiting my blog!
