Simply Saturday circle - Viv and Gay

Hello :)
Simply Saturday circles today with Guest Designer  Viv and ... Gay is back too this week (happy dance here). Both ladies have interpreted the circle theme quite differently as you will see. 
Can't wait to read your comments. 

I made a tent fold card using the Lacey circles die using some textured white card. I layered another piece of white card cut using the the Fleur De Lis  die using some tiny 3D pads.
I shaded the Fleur De Lis die cut just at the edges using some Memento 'Angel Pink' ink and also a touch of Heliotrope at the very tips. 
I layered another circle using some lilac card and cut using the Nestabilities plain circle .
I cut another plain white circle which I had first used the flower die to cut out the flower impression, I used tiny 3D pads to layer again. I then used two Aquamarkers to shade just the tips of the flowers through the die cuts. I stamped a small butterfly using the Heliotrope ink and cut it out, I covered it with some glamour dust using a quickie glue pen.
I stuck the butterfly to the card. I attached an off-cut of some lilac ribbon to the card
and also added part of a heart from the 'Precious hearts' set. I added a few clear gems to the heart.

Textured card: white, lilac card off cut.
Nestabilies dies: Large Lacey circles, Large plain round, Large Fleur De Lis Motifs.
Memory Box dies: Wild Blooms, Heart, Precious Hearts.
Woodware clear stamps: Butterfly Medley.
Memento ink: Angel Pink
Versacolor ink: Heliotrope


Now here's Gay's card, with a more modern approach, both of them could be used for teenager or men cards me think

I used the Spellbinders circles die cut for my background and Tim Holtz distress inks sponged through. The sentiment is popped up with foam pads.
