Birthday circle

   This week for the QKR Stampede challenge we would like you to make a shaped card i.e. one the is neither square nor rectangular.
   I decided to make a circular card because of the rockers on the old woman's chair. I cut it from white card using a Tattered Lace half circle die. Onto this I matted pearlescent card which I had cut using a Tattered Lace pearl circle die.
   The image (number 17202) is called rocking and reading and after colouring it using Promarkers I cut it out using a Tattered Lace pin dot circle. Whilst it remained in the die I dusted the edges using distress ink. using the pin holes I then embroidered round the edge of the design before attaching it to the card.
   To stop the card from rolling I attached a rectangular 'label' to the base of the card onto which I placed a peel off greeting.
