Going Around in Circles

Morning all.  It's new challenge time at Make My Monday and today we want to see some circles.  I have a die with  connecting circles that I had bought and never used so it seemed like a good idea to get it out.  I cut it in black and inlaid it onto white card.  I then cut it in pearlised white, grey and pink.  I then inlaid those.  Yeah, right!  Good idea it may have been - flippin infuriating it was.  I was surrounded by lots of tiny little circles that kept disappearing.  I cut a few more to replace those and they got everywhere.  Well, everywhere but where I wanted them.  Then when I had finished it I didn't like it.  It was all going off at the bottom of the card and needed balance.  I cut a little birthday banner but it got lost on the card.  In the end I just grabbed a load of the left over circles and glued them where they fell.  Here's the result.

The picture is a little washed out and the pearlised white circles get lost in the scanning process but the overall effect is better than it ought to be.  Sometimes it is better to keep going than to give up.  What do you think to the end result?

I'd love to see what you make of the challenge.  Please pop over and give it a try.

Thanks for reading.
