Daring Cardmakers Challenge

Daring Cardmakers has such great challenges, and this week's is no different. They are celebrating their first year and as such they have put out the following challenges.
In honour of all of you who've helped make this blog so successful, and such a friendly place to "play" we've decided to revisit our very first dare for this our first anniversary, but with a twist.
The subject is, as in our original dare "friends", but this time the title is CIRCLE of FRIENDS and we'd like you to incorporate at least one circle into your card.It would make it a very special occasion if for this dare you'd make a card just for the DCM rather than doubling up with other challenges.Please join in and celebrate our first anniversary with us,without all of you - our wonderful extended "Team of Darers" and of course all those who've joined us as Guest Designers over the last year it wouldn't be half as much fun. HAPPY BIRTHDAY DARING CARDMAKERS

I thought it would be great to do a tent topper card using my scallop circle punch, and then went looking for just the right paper. Love the flowers in the "circles" and went from there. The stamp and images are Lizzie Anne. Thanks for looking.
