The Paper Shelter Challenge #338 Round It Up

Good morning and welcome to my new DT post for the new challenge from The Paper Shelter. This week our challenge is called Round It Up so we want to see you using lots of circles on your project this time. I actually struggled with finding a circle large enough for this one and have no dies big enough to make a card sized base. I so need some Grand Nestabilities but they are so hard to come by nowadays, so if you know of any other big sized dies, let me know!

In the end I used a pen pot and drew around it to make my base and then again for the other layers, making them a little smaller each time by drawing another circle freehand inside, keeping the same distance from the original line. I cut them out by hand and think it came out ok in the end!

I used the adorable Hammock Days, one of the newer images in the store, and went for a very CAS (for me anyway) card as I wanted to capture the simplicity and serenity of the moment, reading away in the garden!

This card is also for
