Baby Boy: Digistamps4Joy Challenge #99 - Circles

Hi all, I know, it's been a very long time. Sorry I haven't been around for a long time. I have been dealing with some medical issues for a family member and have not had very much computer or crafting time.

So today marks the half way point for Digistamps4Joy's current challenge. The challenge is being hosted by my fabulously talented team mate Asmah and she wants to see circles! That's right, she wants some sort of circle made of paper on can even add circular embellishments if you'd like. I chose to add circles to my card as I don't have a circle die that is big enough to make a card sized circle. Yeah I know, I could have traced a plate or something and cut it out, but that was too much like work right now. So the image that I used is one that was just release 2 weeks ago called Baby Rattle. We have had a lot of babies born to nieces, and friend's daughter's lately so I figured I would stock up on baby cards. 
Now originally I was going to heat emboss the entire rattle using some embossing felts that I have, but took me so long just to do the areas of green that I did that I decided against doing the rest of it embossed.

So now it's your turn to show us what you've got. Just head on over to Digistamps4Joy's Challenge Blog to check out the rules and a list of our fabulous prizes. And while you're there check out what my incredibly talented team mates have come up with to inspire you. 

Thanks for dropping by ~ Charlene
