Photo Challenge From Barb and Marcy!

My friends Barb and Marcy started a little photo challenge over Hero Arts Flickr Group (details here). I had the pleasure of meeting them at Scrapfest last year and all of us had been in close contact ever since. Here is photo of us from Scrapfest.
 Isn't this cake photo gorgeous and lovely!?
Pinterest Inspiration
 Barb and Marcy are both sweet and talented, so of course, I want to play along! Here is my take:
A GREAT BIG HELLO
I recently received this Connected Circles Die from Little Inkers for a random prize draw! I played with it and punched out a few more smaller circles to add some interest. I stamped the Heart Butterfly
and Wood Background, added some colorful sequins--voila!
Thanks so much for stopping by!

Such a gorgeous card - and that cake is really lovely!! I am missing out on Scrapfest this year - just went to Crop and Create Markham... only so many classes one can take.. but I wish I could come to meet more scrappin' ladies from Ontario - love paper crafting but it can get lonely when none of your friends are into it!

Barb said...

Sure is fun to see that picture from Scrapfest again - I miss all of you!

Your card is awesome, V! I love how you used the colors and circles from the photo - so creative! I'm so glad you joined in the challenge! Hugs! :)

Virginia, That cake is Gorgeous. Love how you interpreted it in the card.
Would you e-mail me your e-mail(sounds strange, doesn't it?) I found something that will give Dr. John a smile. Something that we found on the way out to see my brand new GRANDbaby(boy # 4) this afternoon. I will email you the picture.
