Round and Round we go!

Happy mid week everyone! :)
So glad you popped by today!
Here's a card I really enjoyed making. I love circles!!


I used the Circle Circus stamp set on Bashful Blue c/s with Old Olive ink. Punched them out, then used some scrap patterned paper to back them. On the smaller circles I didn't stamp an image on top and just let the patterned paper shine :)
I cut about a 1/2 inch piece off the front of the card base and adhered the circles randomly. I did 2 score lines on the opposite edge along with some paper piercing. I stamped the sentiment from the Fundamental Phrases stamp set in Old Olive ink. It needed a little something so I used the blender pen and dipped it in my 'palette' on the Old Olive ink lid to make the dots. I distressed each of the circles for a little more dimension.
It's a very girlie card don't you think?! :)
Well, I'm off for mid week Church service.
Until next time...
Blessings...
