Scalloped circle easel card

I used the Belleek Pottery inspired technique again for the background of this card. I really love how it makes the embossing pop when you use an embossing folder.  The folder I've used in this case is Cuttlebug Divine Swirl and I used a Versacolor pad in Orchid for the background colour.  You can find the Belleek technique here on the Splitcoaststampers website.  

I used my Grand Scalloped Circle and Grand Circle nesties for the card base and inner circle.  (btw, I got a couple of sets of Grand Nesties on sale at Hobbycraft this week - £19.99 per set, so if you have a Hobbycraft near you and would like to grab a bargain, pop in and see if they have any left).

The flowers and butterfly punches are from Crafts Too and the leaves are a Sizzix die.  I dotted some Liquid Pearls in the centres of the flowers and along the bodies of the butterflies.

The sentiment and oval punches are from Stampin Up.

I'm going to have a play with my Craft Artist Professional this afternoon - such a fun piece of software and so easy to use.  I'm hoping to make some mini albums and get some more use out of my Bind It All machine.

Hope you're having a good weekend so far.
