You Make Me Smile - LIM#24 Circles

Hello, friends!  Today's card is for the current challenge at Less Is More.  We were challenged to make a card with CIRCLES (note that the card has to have more than one circle, white space, and the CAS feel).

I made this very simple card using a white card base and two Hero Arts stamps: retired Spiral Border and Clear Design Thinking of You Messages.  I colored the Spiral Border stamp with Marvy markers, spritzed with water, then stamped.  I stamped the sentiment in black ink and added a few extra dots and circles of my own with markers to finish it off.  I rounded the bottom corners, and VOILA! 


I don't play with this retired stamp very often anymore, but it always comes to mind when challenges call for circles.  I'm happy I was able to use it for this challenge!

Thanks for stopping by...stay cool!
