Dots and Circles



I've made it to the third and final round of the CAS2014springDTsearch on Splitcoaststampers.  Whew and yea!!! This week's challenge-Ways to Use It-use ribbon with two or more colors.

I decided I would make a large card (5 x 7) to accommodate this wide ribbon. This is really CAS and not much to say about it. I stamped the circles with a Penny Black/Concentrics stamp. The red button was placed inside one of the circles. I love these fun, colorful circles and they make me  happy so I used my sentiment, Happiness.

Wish me luck! We find out next week the ones who made the DT.

Recipe:
Stamps-Penny Black/Concentrics, Inspired by Stamping/Little Flowers set (sentiment)
Paper-PTI white cardstock
Ink-Memento Cottage Ivy, Bahama Blue, and Tuxedo Black, Stampabilities Cherry Red
Accessories-Offray/double stripe red ribbon, red button, embroidery floss

Well, good luck for sure, but I don't see how you can miss! These great cards you have been sharing are definitely in the winners' circle. I think this one really evokes exactly what your sentiment says: It is just a happy feeling card with all these bright spots of color. TFS & Hugs (think we got in the low 70's this afternoon. Most pleasant).
