Good Morning Nic! This little owl is a cutie. I have been admiring all your circle cards and they are lovely. I made a background and cut it in a large circle. I have the image all colored and now I am at a loss as to how to complete. It sat on my worktable yesterday and I never came up with a solution. I do believe you have just inspired me as to how to use this circle. Thanks Nic and have a great day. Your cards are always so beautiful and inspiring. Hugs
