It's Not All Black and White

Circle Thanks

I sat down this morning with last week's Fall-To Layout from Clean & Simple Stamping in mind. I pulled the colors from my ribbon. They're all last year's in-colors, and this is the first time I've used the Pacific Point or Tangerine Tango. I guess mainly because I don't have the inks, but I made some others work for this. The inks are pumpkin pie and Not Quite Navy. I thought they coordinated decently.
I couldn't get my nesties to cut through two layers of card stock. So I cut two separate circles and glued them together with a hinge fold on the back layer. Here's a pic of that. The "thanks" is part of the Cuttlebug Olivia alphabet set. I used a water brush to drag color into the smaller flowers while the ink was still wet. I also made sure two scallops were sitting flat against the bottom when I was orienting my card and fold, so that it would be able to stand straight without rolling away. Have a great weekend!
