Hello

Hiya! Happy Monday! I finally used the Sophie Cricut Circle Cartridge today. :) This is my favorite of all the circle cartridges so far...SO PRETTY! This is just one of the card features on this cartridge. It is just two cuts...the kraft card base...and a white circle to go on the inside. I used a pencil and lightly traced around the design onto the white circle inside. I then used distress inks in shabby shutters, peeled paint, tumbled glass, and broken china to color in the image. 
After I colored it I misted it with perfect pearls in a mini mister to get this look. If you let the ink dry all the way you'll just get shine without the splotches...I like the look of the splotches. The sentiment is from the This and That set from MyCreativeTime

Hope you're having a FAB day! 

♥ Nikki ♥
