Make My Monday #52

Good Morning all and welcome to a new week, i hope you enjoyed the weekend.

So today is the start of a new challenge over at Make My Monday

the theme this time is


I decided this would be the ideal time to use some double sided pink and grey papers i have.  I found this idea on pinterest for taking circles and folding them to make a square.  Turned out not quite as easy as it looked trying to get the folds square (so don't look too close­čśĆ).  

First die circles from the double sided papers and score on 4 sides and fold upwards, these i arranged in a square onto a square of charcoal paper.  White A5 cardblank, matted with white hammered card and charcoal grey paper.  I added pink buttons threaded with thread where the squares joined. 

Stamped greeting die cut into an oval and layered on a strip of pink paper.
