Hostessing for Timeless Tuesday This Week!

I am hostessing this week's Flourishes Timeless Tuesday #227 challenge: GOING IN CIRCLES! This is an easy one -- just make a circle card!

I chose Spring is Sprung for my creation today. We still have birds making nests around our yard, and they remind me of the sweet nest in this stamp set. I used my very OLD Creative Memories Circle Cutter to cut this 5.5" circle card and its layers.
I stamped the nest with VersaFine Onyx Black ink onto Classic White cardstock and embossed with Clear embossing powder. I then colored in using the Sky, Pistachio and Terra Cotta Copic Collections.
The sentiment "Tweet" is also stamped in VersaFine on the designer paper itself. I added some Soapstone seam binding, which I crinkled, a paper flower, some rhinestones, and a glittered, punched out bird for my embellishments.

I hope you will come play along! You'll have us "going in circles"!

Please be sure to check out what the rest of the team made!

I loved the circle challenge this week, and your card is gorgeous! I really like the aqua and tan colors together in the coloring of the nest as well as the bow/flower treatment. We've got more birds than usual at my house this year. They are tweeting all night long right outside our bedroom window!
