At last I've managed to turn out a card for Joan's Circle Flower TLC challenge on Monday. I did try a hexagon flower, and it was definitely WAY easier to fold the thirds, but I like the one made with punched circles better so I used that on my card.
White card embossed with a frame, and inside the frame cut out. I layered the lattice behind it, and behind that again is a piece of white card sponged with Shabby Shutters and then stamped with IO Greenery in Shabby Shutters. The flower is made from some old MME paper - it was single sided, so I sponged the back with purple, and added a brad in the centre to finish it off. HA sentiment, banner edged with a gold pen and a double seam-binding bow. The edge of the card is finished with a gold strip - hard to show in the lighting conditions.
Thanks for a fun challenge, Joan!!

Sabrina, this is beautiful! Your circle flower is perfectly done and I love the die cut with the pretty green paper peeking through. The foliage die cut makes a pretty addition and finishes off the look really well.
