Round in Circles...

Hello! Okay, one more kissing post and then I'll stop kissing for awhile, hee!!! I had to do something a little wild to go with this "wild and wonderful birthday" greeting, so I mixed flowers with polka dots in some bright, bold colors! I really like this card because it shows both that this frame stamp isn't always for "elegant" cards, and how pretty it looks in a larger, square format (5.25")

Start out inking the "Wild at Heart" frame in light pink. Then take the small bold circle from "Inspiration Mosaic" and the large bold circle from "Hip to Be Square" and stamp them in bright pink and then in Brick Red over your pink, inked stamp. Be sure to go off the edges to create a continuous pattern and don't be afraid to overlap them. Now stamp onto white cardstock! Don't you love that flowers showing through and all these bold circles bubbling up?? I repeated the circle element with the ginormous Gina K buttons, embossed circle tag, and embossed the Chocolate Brown layer with Seeing Spots folder. Base is Innocent Pink.


Have a wild day! Go mix flowers with polka dots! :)

This is a fun card, Melanie, and it really does change the look of the "elegant flowers"
