Pink Hearty Circle Card

Remember to enter my Who Made What? Weekends! Linky Party this weekend!

This card I made for Ladybug Crafts, Challenge #11!  The theme for this challenge was "anything BUT square", so.....I did just that!
I couldn't get the lighting right, it was either too dark or too bright, so I've posted both and you should hopefully be able to get the effect of the card when you combine them, hehe.

As you can see I chose a circle card.  I made a cute girly hearty one this time.  I cut out a circle from white card stock using some handy circle cutter goodie, then I cut another scalloped circle out of pink marbled paper with my fancy scissors, another white circle and a small pink circle with polka dot pattern.

The inside of the smaller white circle I stamped in pink ink with a small heart stamp all around the edge.  I think it made a really pretty design!  Then I inked the edges with a darker pink/red ink just to make it stand out a bit against the light background marbled paper.
I wanted to give the card a softer effect to match my cute girly theme, so with my little paper distresser I distressed (is that the right word?!) the edges of the polka dot paper as well as the most outer edge of the card:
Again there's a mystery blob on the photo that's not actually on the card...
For the final decorations I added a pretty button in the centre with a shiny string tied through it, and some hearty and round blings around the card.
I think the card would have looked prettier had I added a patterned paper onto the card background instead of leaving it just plain white, since it looks too empty with just the white background.  But oh well,  I think it's cute anyway. :D
