So I used a piece of the circle paper on top, and a piece of the background print paper at the bottom...and fit some "chopped" oval pieces inside the top of the circle. And it turned out like this...
It was a fun discovery that the floral oval diecut and the oval doily would fit inside the top portion of the circle, and that I could make it all work on a 5-1/4" square card and not lose the details of the florals over the top of the circle. I cut two scrollwork die pieces, and layered flowers, ferns, and leaves over them to cover most of the left side of the card...
I popped the half-ovals up with foam tape, and used a double layer of scalloped lace across the bottom edge...one piece of lace on the ovals, the other on the card base above the stamped sentiment, matching up the scallops. This way, the lace itself formed another dimensional element to the bottom third of the card...this was a fun card to make!
