Comforting Circle

This card is for a challenge in the Gina K. forum at SCS. I just loved this challenge...to make a round card, it really makes you think outside of the box...or rectangle as it were. This is also for Joan's Challenge for Dare to get Dirty week, to use silhouette stamps.
This card is a couple of firsts for me...first time I've inked this gorgeous set, Comfort and Peace and the first time I've really used a lot of Wild Wasabi on a card! I know it's a really popular colour, I've just had trouble getting to grips with it!

I also went shopping today, and although you can barely see it, I used one of my new Cuttlebug folders, Argyle, on the frame and Soft Sky layer.

I based the colour scheme on the Two Scoops paper by Basic Grey. You should have seen me do the happy dance when I needed something for the flower center and found that brad in my stash! Love it when that happens.
