Crop Circles?

 
This card solves a dilemma: I was dying to play with some lovely new stamps that arrived when I was away on holiday and I also wanted to enter this week's Less Is More, which has a circles theme.  The stamp set is Stampin' Up and came from the Lady LIM herself, Mandi, gorgeous stamps Mandi, thanks!  I made a circly background for my card by using masking tape to punch out circles and also to mask off the top and bottom.  I've been using Post-Its but decided to get my masking tape out and give it a go.  Even on the glossy cardstock it worked fine, will definitely keep it out now!  I punched the circles into tape stuck onto paper, it glues the punch up otherwise.  Ask me how I know this...  :).  Sentiment is a Sheena Douglass stamp, inks are Spiced Marmalade and an Adirondack Lemonade. images use Sepia Versafine.

My card is for the following challenges:
Less is More - Circles
Shopping our Stash - turnback technique (masking tape)
Allsorts Challenge - free and easy July
Cute Card Thursday - going round in circles

  8. Stunning love the colours but more importantly reminds me of the corn fields that use to be at the back of my home when I lived with my parents when I was very young, it brings back so many happy moments which is perfect for the sentiment you have used
