Circle Circus Christmas ~ July 19, 2012



This is the card I made for this week's splitcoast color challenge which was to use very vanilla, gumball green, and cherry cobbler.  I also made this card for the Clear is out Challenge blog and that challenge was a theme of Christmas and a stash challenge to use red, green, or even both.

When I bought my Circle Circus stamp I knew it would make great one sheet wonder cards and I thought perhaps it would make cute Christmas cards too, what do you think? 

I randomly stamped the circle images using gumball green and cherry cobbler ink and then I layered it onto my cherry cobbler card stock.  I decided to add a small strip of gumball green card stock behind my very vanilla ribbon.  For a final embellishment, I added a few rhinestone gems in the center of the circle images.
