Circle thanks

The layout for this card came from a sample in Stampin' Success, a demonstrator magazine from Stampin' Up! And "Circle Circus" seemed like the perfect stamp set to use. I love how our circle punches work so well with these images, making cards like this super-easy to create!

I added some stampin' dimensionals behind a couple of the circles and stamped some circles directly onto the cardbase to add some more visual interest. And this gave me the perfect reason to open that package of new Soft Suede polka dot grosgrain ribbon so I tied a small piece in a knot and attached with a glue dot.

One of the sentiments from the new "Falling Leaves" stamp set lent itself well to the trail of circles with its curvy phrase

Starting with a simple layout, this card took only 5 minutes to complete. Enjoy! :-)

Great color combo! I love the way the curving sentiment echoes the circles.
