Crafty Ann's Challenge #71 - In a nod to the Olympics - Circles

Another fortnight has whizzed by and it is time for another challenge at Crafty Ann's.  This time the topic is "in a nod to the Olympics, circles - there needs to be more than one on your project".
For my two cards I have used the same papers for the background and they are from the Imperial Purple and Cream Dream Scrapbook Kits.  The gorgeous flower embellishment and circle frames are from the Imperial Purple Scrapbook Kit. 
For this Get Well Card I have added some butterflies from the Imperial Purple Scrapbook Kit.  The card has been finished off with some buttons for the centres of the flowers, sentiment off the computer and a ribbon bow.
For this happy birthday card I have added Stickles glitter glue to the centre of the flowers for come sparkle, added some butterflies of varying sizes from the Sweet Sage Scrapbook Kit with Stickles added to the centres of the butterflies, some fine satin ribbon and finally a seam binding ribbon bow.

Two gorgeous cards Kym.

Many thanks for the beautiful card you sent for my birthday - silly me left all my early arrivals behind when we went away so I had about 40 cards to open yesterday!

My JS card swap should be in the post in the next day or two when I get myself organised - it's only the 2nd or 3rd time I've swapped with someone I actually know!

Hope you're okay and hubby is enjoying his time in London. Carol x

What a stunning card. So lovely. I like the colors you have used and those butterflies are so cute. Also love the CAS style design like Plastic cards, which make the card POP. Thanks for sharing.
