Circle the Globe at Fashionable Stamping Challenge

Its time for another challenge at Fashionable Stamping and for this fortnight it's 'Circle the Globe' in other words we want to see circles on your project and we would love to see how you interpret this.
But don't forget, we especially need to see that the stamping is the focal point on the project and that this must follow the format of the theme.  We are again sponsored by Flonzcraft, who are offering one lucky random winner a $20 spend in their online store.
For my card I have used my new Jofy stamps, something completely different for me, but I love these quirky flowers.  I stamped in black and heat  embossed using Clear EP.  The flowers were coloured with Distress Markers and then heat embossed using a Watermark embossing pen and Clear EP, which meant I could ink and splatter without affecting the coloured flowers and circles.  My butterfly was stamped before cutting with a circle Nesti, which was left in place while I coloured with Peacock feathers  DI.  The words were heat embossed before cutting up, and all edged with the PF DI.
My fabulous teamies have some wonderful interpretations of these theme, so please pop over to the main blog, you won't be disappointed, and of course, all the rules and information is there.

I am entering this at:
  Allsorts - Butterflies
  Thats Crafty - Spring
  Crafts4Eternity - Stamp It
  A Little Bit Crafty - Flower Power
  The Artistic Stamper - In the Garden
  Stamping Sensations - Anything Goes

Enjoy the rest of the Bank Holiday weekend and thanks for  popping by,  I do hope to start visiting  and to get back to normal this week.
