Circle themed card

Have a few guys to send cards to in the next few weeks so I have started on some cards for them.  I have seen several circle themed cards on Splitcoast Stampers lately and thought I would give it a go.
I started with a small piece of decorative marbled paper which I cut apart and layered onto black - love the stone look of it.  I added some blue and silver circles halves to each side of this element by just taping them to the back once I had placed them where they needed to be.  I embossed a dark blue card front using a circle embossing folder (CB) and then glued my focal element to it using double sided tape.  It still needed a bit of something so I used a silver gel pen and added some dots to the blue half circles and that was enough to make it work for me.  I trimmed a greeting and layered it onto black and mounted it over my element using double sided tape on one side and 3D foam tape on the other.
Really loving the look of that marbled paper!!
