Circles & Scraps

Morning all. Hope the sun is shining on you today, a little dull here at the moment.

I thought I would test myself and not use a stamp or image for these challenges and incorporate both themes

......and this is what I did

The scraps were to be no bigger than 2" so I used appropriate sized nesties and cut out circles from various complimentary scraps then folded in half and glued back to back to create the balloons. I masked the edge of the card and used cut and dry and DI pads to create the scene. Needs practice but not too bad for a first attempt I thought!!

Apologies for the picture my photography skills have taken a nose dive again!! 

Have a lovely day whatever you are doing x
