CCMC192 - Word Play

I love circles on cards so completing the sketch challenge at Create with Connie and Mary was a no-brainer for me and this card came together quite quickly, which is always nice as I'm a slow designer who always second-guesses myself!

Here is the sketch:


And here is my card:


I used Textured Cardstock for the base and paper pierced a circle on it which you can see better in this next picture.

I used my circle scissor to cut 3 different sized circles - one out of DSP, one out of Peach Parfait cardstock and one out of Whisper White Textured Cardstock.  I used markers to ink up the stamp from Word Play, which is a great set and I'm so glad I got it.  I quite like the effect of the stamping on textured cardstock.  The stamped images are popped up on dimensionals.

Products used:  (all Stampin' Up!)

Stamps:  Word Play, Little Friends
Cardstock:  Basic Black Textured; Whisper White Textured; Peach Parfait; Just Add Cake DSP
Ink:  Early Espresso
Accessories:  Early Espresso, Wild Wasabi, Peach Parfait, Poppy Parade markers; Circle Scissor; Paper Piercing Tool.

Cheers
Karren
