Live. Laugh. Love

I had some time to get inky today - after doing the never-ending laundry and housework, of course!  I decided to combine the challenges at ColourQ and CAS(E) This Sketch.



I used the challenge colors to stamp random circles from Lots of Dots in the top right and bottom left of a Whisper White card base.  I used the solid circles in various sizes as well as a few outline circles.  Once I was happy with the look, I dug around for a sentiment for the middle.  I found this old Penny Black sentiment and thought it went well with the happy and bright circles.




I placed a few Candy Dots around the card and called it done.

Thanks for looking.

Stamps:  Lots of Dots (SSS), Live Laugh Love (Penny Black)
Ink:  Tempting Turquoise, Melon Mambo, Daffodil Delight, Kiwi Kiss, Memento Tuxedo Black

Cheers
Karren

Fantastic combination of these challenges - love that you used solid and open circles and the 'bubbly' feeling is perfect with that sentiment!

This is such a cool take on both challenges, Karren. Love the colours and the way the words are focused in the middle.

What a beautiful, uplifting card, Katie! The brightly colored circles make me think of bubbles and the sentiment is wonderful!
