Enjoy Your Special Day - SUO Challenge #164

This week the challenge at SUO is a theme one.  The challenge is to use circles, squares, or ovals or all three shapes in a project.

My plan initially was to use a circle matted with a scallop die cut circle. Then I added the squares and the oval.

All 3 shapes - circles, squares and an oval are present on this card.  The circle theme is also present in the Serene Scenery DSP (Bokeh effect), the embossing (large dot embossing folder) and the round enamel dots.

Art Piece: 

A small section of the "In the Lines" DSP (SAB) was die cut with the Layering circles framelit, and only the flower and its leaf were coloured with a blender pen and ink pads (Melon Mambo, Crushed Curry, Delightful Dijon, Pacific Point, Pear Pizzazz, and Old Olive).  The circle was then matted with a Melon Mambo scallop circle. Dazzling Details was added to the flower and the leaf after the card was finished.

A bumble bee was die cut in Gold Foil Paper and adhered to the circle near the flower.

Card:
The Melon Mambo card base was layered with Whisper White embossed with the Large Dot Embossing folder. In the upper left and lower right are squares of Serene Scene DSP with a circle pattern on it (Bokeh effect).  These squares are layered with scalloped squares of Old Olive card stock and adhered to the card front.
The art piece was adhered to the card front straddling these two squares, using dimensionals.

Three (circle) melon mambo enamel dots were placed in the upper left of the card.

Sentiment:
The sentiment, from "Dragonfly Dreams" was stamped in Black Memento on Whisper White, matted with Old Olive cardstock and mounted on a 1 3/4 by 7/8" melon mambo oval.  This unit was adhered to the card front below the art piece using dimensionals.
