This is a sketch by Rebecca Peck:
It's really simple, which I like. I decided to see if I could make two cards, both based on the sketch, that look completely different from each other.
For my first card, I used Prima's Rebellious collection. It follows the sketch fairly closely. I didn't want to cover up the cute bird paper with a solid circle, so my solution was a semicircle of Stickles dots, connected with a pen.

Other: Bazzill cardstock; Fiskars border punch; Zig pen
For the second card, I used Prima's My Mommy and Me collection. I love the embossed leaf paper and didn't want to cover it with a solid circle either! I laid out a piece of embroidery floss with the intention of hand-stitching a semicircle, but I couldn't get it to lay flat to see if I liked the design. Then I realized the curvy floss would make such a cute balloon string! In the end, I used a pen to draw the string and ditched the floss (and the semicircle) altogether.

This sketch was so much fun! As far as making two cards that look completely different from one another... mission accomplished!
