This week's challenge #31 at Michelle Perkett Studio is Circles & Ribbon/Lace. I altered this journal using Michelle's beautiful Pearl digital stamp, available from Michelle's Etsy shop HERE.
Pearl was printed onto Xpress Graphx blending card and coloured with Copics. She was then highlighted with lots of bling...SU Dazzling Diamonds, Kindy Glitz, Stickles, glitter pens and glaze pen...then cut into a circle with my CM cutting system. The front panel has SU Basic Black CS as the base with DP from the Kaiser Spirograph collection as the background for the image. The ribbon is Kaiser grosgrain, which matches perfectly!! with the SU Certainly Celery CS, which I used to mount Pearl and the believe panel. "Believe" has been computer generated and traced over with a clear glitter pen.
Inside the front cover:
I made a ribbon marker from the leftover grosgrain and attached a punched circle element from the same DP collection. I attached the ribbon marker to the back cover, before adhering the DP to the inside.

As soon as I read about this challenge I thought of this DP...it is perfect for a challenge using circles...and I love the colours. When I went to look at the DT projects I realised Nancy had used it on her gorgeous card...great minds think alike lol!
