The Paper Shelter Challenge #212 Use Some Circles

Good morning and welcome to my DT post for The Paper Shelter Challenge blog. This week we are challenging you to use some circles on your project. That means we want to see circle shapes - gems, pearls, flowers etc will not count as the circles.

I made a circular shaped card using the new fab Viking Vacation. Love this little guy and thought he would make a fun "Happy Summer" card to give to our link governor at school, who comes in every week to listen to children in our year group read. He has been a big help in encouraging them to read more often as well as helping them to improve.

I thought he would look great in a beach scene and love how this card came out.
