Circular Madness

Hello again Everyone!

I wanted to send this card to the Create with Connie and Mary and Colour Q challenges. Both were fabulous challenges which inspired my creation.. Here it is I hope you enjoy it!

Entering Challenges:
Create with Connie and Mary: Sketch Challenge #CCMC263
ColourQ: Challenge #298


The circles within the circle are each colored using the Colour Q challenge and the layout was inspired by Connie and Mary. So cute and more importantly so easy.. It is just one layer and is ready to be popped in the mail at a moments notice. I am sure-ish this card may be CAS design. Please correct me if I am wrong.

I think the pops of color really makes this card stand out. The subtle yet cheery colors are just perfect for the sentiment that was stamped. I thought at first I would color in the letters but then looking at it again I thought it looks great just the way it was.

So this is how I made this delightful card.
How to:
  1. Stamp the circles from the retired Circle Circus set 
  2. Colored one circle in each of the larger circle one color that was taken from the ColourQ challenge. 
  3. Rounded the corner of the card
  4. Stamped the sentiment 
I am not kidding that is all it took to create this card and what a an impactful and graphic design this ended up becoming. I am really enjoying how this card turned out and I hope you do to..

Well that is it for me tonight I am (once again) cutting it close with entering a challenge but I think I can make it.. Take care and please leave a comment and let me know what you think! Until next time..

All the best,
