Strawberry Patch...

Congratulations on your garden!  
This is a really easy version of a circle card - with just a brad to keep the circles together.  I used a Sissix to die-cut the circles and felt a swivel opening would be fun.  Additional flowers were added for the background along with distressed edges.  
Card swings open pivoting on the brad.

This card should be eligible for the following
Clear It Out - ConBRADulations
Everybody Art #193 - Purple and Blue
Simon Says - Clean and Simple
DP2 #135 - Circle Card
One Stitch at a Time #114 - Anything Goes

IMAGES:  The focal image is by Mo Manning and is from Penny Black; flowers are "Dandie Trio" by Stampendous.
PAPER:  Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 80# Cover Wt. used for the images; base CS is Georgia Pacific
EMBELLISHMENTS: simple purple brad from my stash.
INKS: "Stormy Sky" Distress Inks were used to distress the edges; Flowers are inked with "Dusty Concord" and "Peeled Paint" Distress inks.  The focal image is stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black & colored with Copics:
