Simple rocker card -plus tutorial

This is my last post as a Guest Designer for Catch the Blog Challenges, I've had a wonderful time designing with Jodie's fabulous images and would like to thank her and the very lovely and talented DT for having me!
I'm delighted to tell you that I've been asked to stay on as a DT member, of course I accepted, so I'll be back next week with some more Bugaboo makes :)

Today I have created a little rocker card and a short tutorial (a first for me!)  to show the process.

Here's what you need- cardstock, dp, various circle dies, ribbon, and a couple of little brads...oh and the
 image of course.
I used Kidz Bella Birthday Balloons available here, and used my copics to colour her.

My card is small, these are the sizes of die I used...size doesn't really matter, you can make it as big or small as you like!
I used dies from different sets to get the sizes I wanted

Using the largest stitched die, cut 1 from cardstock
Using the medium sized stitch die cut 1 from DP
Using the smallest stitched die cut out image
Using the scalloped die cut 1 from cardstock
I used the pink die to cut 1 from DP -( this isn't essential)

Next score and fold the largest cardstock circle and the larger dp circle, then glue the dp onto the cardstock

Layer up the remaining circles, inking edges where required, glue together then glue onto folded circle as in photo.
Basically the card is now complete and can be decorated (or not!) as required.

I added two bows with the tiny brads and a sentiment tag.

Hope this all made sense :)
Thanks for visiting today!
