Brit *Day 2*

Here's our next fab inspiration card by Brit:
Don't you love her circle background? You can learn how Brit designed it by watching her video HERE. The imperfect look of the circles coordinates well with the rustic look of the kraft paper on which she has layered her birthday cake. And while we're talking about that cake- check out Brit's paper piecing! WOW, WOW, WOW!

Here's my take. Brit inspired me to make some circles of my own. First, I used a small circle punch to create a circle "stencil." Next I used Distress Ink and that stencil to create my circle background. Too fun!

Thanks for looking! See you tomorrow with another creative card by Brit!!
