The use of round shapes - sketch challenge

For Gill's challenge this week there is a sketch to follow, which anyone who follows me, knows I really enjoy doing! This is the sketch:
I have made two cards, a square one and an A5.
The square card is white and I added the scrapling that was left after I cut down the A4 card across the middle. I distressed it with Mustard Seed and then stamped randomly with water and blotted to give an impression. The round shapes were punched and stamped with a daisy stamp from Sheena Douglass and distressed with Mustard seed as well. They were mounted with foam pads and the sentiment is from my Xyron digital printer. The buttons are from my stash.

The A5 card is  sage green mounted onto a white card. The white frame is an xcut die through my cuttlebug  that cuts and embosses at the same time. The butterfly stamp is a bargain from Ally Pally which I stamped onto the 3 circles and then a single image cut out and mounted separately.
The ink was bundled sage distress ink and the sentiment was a freebie from Netty. The flower is rolled felt with punched leaves and a few pearls.

Thanks for looking and good luck with the challenge!
