Circle card Tutorial with some paper piecing!

This is my first tutorial for the Anyone for Anya? Tutorial blog and in fact my first tutorial ever! So please be kind to this Tutorial ‘newbie’!

Ingredients:
CC Designs Tweet-ies set
Ink
Copic markers or other colouring medium
Patterned Paper: I used Heidi Grace Orchard pack from my stash
Bazzill card or similar heavier weight cardstock
White cardstock
Spellbinders Nestabilities Scalloped Circles
Marvy circle punchKaisercraft Black Pearls
Kaisercraft Snow pearl coloured with YR07
Bow-easy
Ribbon; I used American Crafts purple and white gingham
Foam dots, double- sided tape, glue

Method:
Stamp your image onto white cardstock twice and onto patterned paper, colour with copics. I used V15, V17, YR07, E55, E57, B01, C5 and C7.
Cut out the main image using a circle punch. Edge the circle using V17. Cut out the wagon base from the patterned paper. Colour and cut out the wheels. Punch two scalloped circles using your nestabilities. Score between the top 4-5 scallops on ONE scalloped circle (this will be the back of the card), fold and glue together to make your card base.
Glue down the wagon base onto the main image. Attach the wheels with foam dots.
Cut one scalloped circle from patterned paper larger than your image. Cut one circle from patterned paper smaller than your scalloped card base. Edge with V17. Attach patterned paper together. Run a piece of tape across the middle, adhere your ribbon and fold around to the back.
Adhere the patterned paper to your card base and then attach the image. Colour one snow pearl using YR07.
Attach the YR pearl on to the flower and add small black pearls for eyes.
Tie a bow using your bow easy and attach to the card.
Add large black pearls to the wheels, add a sentiment and your card is finished!

I hope this was helpful and easy to follow. Let me know what you think so I can improve on my efforts in the future!
