Sketch Challenge at Heart 2 Heart

Hi Everyone - where has the month of March gone?  I can not believe that it is already the last week of the month.  Wow!
Today at Heart 2 Heart Challenges they are doing a sketch challenge.  I do love a good sketch challenge, so I was excited to make this card today.
Here are the two options for the sketch:

You can make it a circle shaped card like this.....

Or...You can put the circle on a standard card like this:
I decided to do the second version.  I used a standard card base made with White Daisy Cardstock.  Then I cut out a circle out of scratch paper to make a mask, and placed it on my cardbase.  I used sponges, Blush Ink and Hollyhock Ink to sponge around the circle.  Removed the mask and it left a perfect white circle on my card base.  Here is the card:

I used the beautiful Sophia paper pack (X7131B) from the new Spring/Summer Idea Book.  I just love those colors.  I added some black cardstock too.  The stamp sets are C1397 Smiles for the funky little flower and flourishes and D1475 Card Chatter - Birthday for the sentiment.  I added three black pearls from the Licorice Opaques embellishments (Z1335).  I cut out the flower and colored it in using Blush and Hollyhock Markers.  For the center of the flower I just stamped the flower again using Goldrush Ink and then added the pink dots with my Hollyhock Marker.  Then I cut it out and glued it right on top of the center.  I'm thinking about adding a little liquid glass to the center to make it shiney too.
Be sure to post your artwork, I just love to see what everyone comes up with.  If you want any or all of these products you can order them on my website
Have a great day!
