Allsorts DT wk#167 Going Round in Circles

Morning all,
Really quick post this morning as we are going to Leeds today to the Lili of the Valley shop, I'm soooooo excited as I have a place booked on Dawny P's promarker class this afternoon and I cant wait to spend some money in their shop too!
This morning sees the start of another fab 
 challenge, brought to you this time by our lovely teamie Jo, who would like to see us all 
Going Round in Circles!

I had a New Home card to make for my brother and sister-in-law and I came up with this:

It's not my usual style, I have to say, but the idea just came to me and I had to go with the flow!
I cut the Kraft card base using Scalloped Grand Nestie. As I don't have any plain circle nesties I had to get my compass out for the inner circle, the paper is from TH Lost and Found - which I also used on the SU house stamp (a roll-a-round wheel stamp) to link it to the paper underneath. The image and sentiment (computer generated) are mounted on Kraft lacey circle nesties. The fence is a Magnolia Doohickey and I added some white acrylic paint to this and the bubble wrap layers. SU baja breeze seam binding and a key charm are the finishing touches.

Thanks for stopping by and taking a look at my card today and I hope you find time to enter the challenge this week, pop over to Allsorts for all the details and all the other fab DT inspiration!

Super Cute card! Not something that would be my normal style either but I love how you pulled it all together! I now feel compelled to make a card for my friend who just had to move for the third time this year!
