Two Circles for CAS-ual Fridays

This week's CAS-ual Friday's challenge is to use TWO circles.  I've had a number of ideas in my head but nothing quite came together.

Then...a very nice lady who saw my cards on Pinterest emailed me and asked me to check out her digi shop, As You Wish Designs.  I brought up the Hybrid section and the second set that I looked at had sentiments with...TWO circles...YEAH!!  I love the instant gratification of digital stamps - I ordered, they arrived instantly and I got to make this fun card!!


As You Wish




In the spirit of the challenge, I didn't even use circular brads!  There are already two circles on the image!

If you own a Silhouette Cameo...which I don't (yet).....you have to check out her shop.  I am in love with her Subway Art cutting files - very large canvases with quotes and Bible verses.  She also has great kits with coordinating images and cut-outs.  Of course, I don't own a Silhouette Cameo (yet)...and I'm not sure I can justify it just for the Subway Art...hmmm....
  • Stamps: As You Wish Designs
  • Paper: Papertrey Ink Raspberry Fizz, black and white
  • Ink: none
  • Accessories: Cuttlebug Embossing Folder, misc black gingham and square yellow brads
