Going round in circles

I made a really good card, seriously one of my best, but then realised I wasn't following the sketch properly! 

This week it's sketch week at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown.
I re-jigged the idea so here is MarkII. Not quite as good as MarkI of course...

Anyway I had fun cutting out all the circles and fitting it together. I have to give credit for the inspiration to Deborah Frings. DT from 52 CCT. She has made a lovely set of cards using DP which made me think of a pad I  bought last year but have hardly used. Someone also made a card with a vellum window recently, I think that was you too? (if not apologies to the person concerned). So your DT inspiration is working on me!
It looks interesting when the light shines through the back and is much more fun than the cards I usually make. 
I picked out the areas with faces and cut them out. 

Sorry about the bad photos I took them in  hurry. I should not be doing this just now...
Enough from me, back to the real world. 
I've also used some snippets so I'm popping in to Pixie's Snippets Playground. It's chilly so I hope you've got your coats on, girls, and something warming to drink behind the bike sheds.


  1. Such a cute card, Alison! The effect of the light shining through is fantastic. Thanks for joining us at 52CCT, April x

  2. I think your windows are just wonderful - really pretty use of the paper too. Thanks so much for playing along with 52CCT this week! Deborah, DT.

    PS - Check your email!!

  3. Great card Alison! Clever use of the windows and lovely to see you in the Playground of course. I hear that Parsnip is charging for a cuddle and a nip from his whisky flask if that's what you mean by something warming to drink behind the bike sheds! I won't even TELL you where he puts the flask to keep it warm :)

  4. Fab card, Alison! The round windows are brilliant and the fussy cut patterned paper is a great idea. Elizabeth xx
