MORGAN the kid - Using Circles

I was feeling like all my layouts lately were really linear... so here are some circles for a change! This is a really basic layout with detail that makes it pop! I just love how I got to use a tone of my scraps to make the various circles (I love my 1 1/4" circle punch!). The trick here is to use a lot of variety in colors. I also like to add in textures like the Swiss Dot, Velvet, and crimping.
Here is some detail of both the flower cluster and my faux stitching created with just a EK Success Cutter Bee Bug and a pen.
More texture was added by crimping the main title (cut with the Provo Craft Cricut - Road Sign cartridge) and popped up with foam to keep the dimension as well.
