Man Oman!

 I don't always share the layouts that I make at Scrapbook Sister's fortnightly classes but I was really pleased with this one. I freestyle a whole lot more these days,just using the odd bits from the inspirational layouts that the girls make to inspire us. Here I used the circles that they'd used but took my inspiration from the shapes in the photos

I love the chipboard alphabets,I just sanded down the letters and rubbed them over with inks. I used my copics to colour the gems to match.

The flowers were punched  and distressed and the swirls of brown were hand cut,just went with the flow lol! I used a looped scallop type punch on one of the papers but when I placed it onto the background it didn't look quite as I'd hoped so I placed a thin strip of  the chevron type paper through the centre which improved the look (to me anyway).

I'm using this card for the following challenges:-
Creative Craft Challenge,Fancy edges,
Make It Monday 60,Anything goes.
Thanks for stopping by,
