Circle card

Hi there sweet peeps! How 'bout changing the usual shape of our cards for this week's challenge at Digital Pencil Too? I don't see many circle cards, yet they look lovely, might have to make more of these. 
The truth is it's easier to use the guillotine and make them square or rectangular. Since I don't have a great calibur I have to cut freehand these big circles for my card; but it was fun to make it:)

This is the second time I use Mo's Sunday Child; I rarely use a stamp twice- maybe because Mo has soooo many gorgeous images to choose from, but I really love the exuberance of this adorable girl and seemed perfect for my circle card.

Materials I used:
Images: Mo Manning- Sunday's Child
Medium: copics, promarkers
Die cuts: Magnolia Doohikey's- Tilda Lace and Romantic Tag
Embellishments: Wild Orchid Crafts flowers, lace/ribbon from stash
Sentiment: Whimsy Stamps

And some challenges for my card:
Wild Orchid Challenge- Anything Goes
Sassy Cheryl's - 1E, SIO - #115 Anything but a Square Card 
Simon Says Stamp and Show... - Anything Goes

That's it from me today; hope your week is lovely and it's getting even better:) Thanks for being here, hope you will join us at Mo's this week!
Big hugs,

Hi Iulia! I always know that your card will be bright and colorful...and this one is beautifully bright and cheerful! I'm with you, I seldom us the same Mo image twice...and I'm sure it's because there ARE so many Mo images to choose from...and she's coming up with more and more all the time! Makes me happily crazy! hehe! I love, love, LOVE your coloring and designwork! And the scene you created with that gorgeous rainbow is beyond brilliant!! And I just drool over your stitching! (I'm still trying to master "faux" stitching! hehe!) Stunning creation, m'dear! Hugs. Pat Frank

I think we all rarely us an image twice, but sometimes they just fit, and this one is just perfect.. as is your hand cut circle. OMG!!! I would have wasted so much paper cutting it out free hand...But as always yours is just perfect.

Beautiful, happy and gorgeously colored card Iulia! You brought this card together so well and I would never have guessed that you hand cut your circles...mine would look like lopsided ovals!! Hugs...Barb <><
