Circle Circus Meets Fast & Fabulous

A long time ago I had a card with a background similar to this but the circles were made using a round background stamp.  These stamps have long since been retired.  I always liked the look they created.  SO I hunted through the catalog to see what round stamp I could find and I came up with this circle one from "Circle Circus."  I have not played with that set much and I really should, it's got such fun possibilities to it.  Like this card for instance!

The flowers are from the "Fast & Fabulous" set.  I just stamped them in black.  The image from the Circle Circus carried the color for the card so nothing was needed on the flowers.  

And the words are from the "Sincere Salutations" set.  One of my favorite word sets! Hope it's in the next catalog.  I know it's been around for a while but it's such a wonderful set to have on hand for all of your greeting card needs.

My card was made using a half sheet of Pear Pizazz folded in half.  The white was cut at 4-1/8" x 5-3/8".  The colors on the circles is as follows:  Pretty in Pink, Pear Pizazz, Daffodil Delight and Bashful Blue.  Black StazOn was used for the words and the flowers.  The Basic Black pad takes a little longer to dry for me so when it comes to black I can almost always be found using the StazOn.  And that's it.  It's a very quick and simple card to make. Oh and don't forget versatile too.  This could also be used for a sympathy, get well, Mother's Day, thinking of you and friendship.

Thank you SO much for visiting today,

Hi Wanda,
Very pretty card and easy to demonstrate. Please don't be upset, but the flowers are from the hostess set Fast and Fabulous. I can see where it'd be easy to get confused--Fabulous with an "F" word before or after LOL

Very nice love the circles with the flourished centers.

Hi Wanda,

Very nice Clean and Simple card - sometimes they come in very handy...and this one would make a nice set of cards done in different colors for a gift! The flower stamp set is from the hostess set Fast & Fabulous, vs. Fabuloius Florets, I believe.

A simple, but very attractive, card here Wanda. Thanks for the idea.
