TLT - Michele's Challenge - must use a circle shape on the card OR make a circle card, include pink & chocolate within the card/image/design/paper/layout - SOMEWHERE!

Phew....did you get the title lol??!! Yes it's TLT and it's the magical Michele's (or as we lovingly call her MP...short for Mary Poppins...long story!) turn. First I want to thank everyone who entered last weeks Tag It! challenge...they were all fabulicious! As always the winners are posted on the Challenge Blog so make sure you check to see if you're one of them :-D
As I was saying it's MP's turn to choose the challenge. I don't know anyone who doesn't like pink and brown together OR who doesn't like circles. Put them together and that's this weeks challenge! As long as you've got some of the criteria on your card/project you can enter...seemple lol.
I wanted to use a stamp I hadn't inked up in a long while and it was a toss up between two but Robyn won and this is what I came up with...

It IS a square card but there's plenty of circles AND brown and pink! I used a Nestie to cut out the flower (circle!) then ran it through my Cuttlebug with an embossing folder keeping the patter to the right. I then stitched it to a piece of brown cs. It looked a bit bare so I decided to stitch around the flower as well! I stamped Robyn in Momento Tuxedo black ink and coloured her in with my Copics. I used another Nestie to cut and emboss the image (circle) and using sticky foam pads stuck her to the inside of the flower. When I was buying the balloons for Ben's birthday I bought the megalicious brown and pink ribbon I used on the card tying it in a bow. I stuck the whole shebang on a pink card, cut out Monty Mushroom felt flowers (circle) using my MFT die and finished it off with a pink spotty button (circle).

I totally regret giving Robyn brown shoes...don't know WHAT I was thinking?? To make it up to her I glittered her socks :-D The glitter on her dress doesn't look much in the picture BUT is sparklicious IRL.

I adore Monty Mushroom felt...I think it has to be my favourite :-D

I bought the ribbon in two widths and will have it on the website shortly. I used my tiny tag punch and sentiment

I cut a piece of brown cs and ran it through the Cuttlebug with an embossing folder and used the flower I cut out of the front of the card for the inside and will put a sentiment on it later.

I'd love to enter my card in the following challenges:

Pink and brown is one of my favorite go to colour combos, it can be girl or elegant.

Gorgeous card, the image is just adorable. The glitter on the bottom of her dress and her socks is just so cute! Fab job!
