Clear It Circle Card Challenge

First of all I want to apologize for being MIA for the last couple months.  My Computer had a trojan and try as we might, my techie friends &  I couldn't fix it. I finally had to buy a new computer! I have also been having some health challenges and parenting dilemmas...those never end of course, but they seem to have calmed down.  I am so happy to be back!

And Now....
 It's time for a new challenge at the Clear It Out Challenge Blog
We are doing Circles!  Anything goes for the stash item so see what you can Clear Out of your stash.

Here is my card:

Isn't she cute!  this image is called Hayley's Hat. Find it here

I've been experimenting with different copics for skin tones.  For some reason I never like the ones called Skin or Baby Skin...oh well. I used a couple of the really light yellow reds (YR000, & YR00 along with Brick White (E40) to give a little "tan" to the shading.  What do you think?

I decide to use some of my "newer" (aka purchased sometime within the last year or so. I think it was September or October...) stash instead of digging so deep.  I used some punch outs from Cloud9 Design's Specialty collection for the frames. I just traced them onto some white Wausau cardstock for the shape, and cut them out. All my embellies are from Colorbok's Antique Paperie. There are some glitter punch outs and a chipboard sticker.  A couple pop dots and a glue dot later...Hayley is smiling.  Why?  Because you are wonderful! This could be a "Thank You", "Thinking of You", a "Great Job" or even a "Hang In There" card. Can you think of any other possibilities?

I can hardly wait to see what you create with circles! Be sure to link your projects up at the Clear it Out Challenge Blog.
