LIM — Circles

This week's Less is More Challenge is circles. After making a card and being disappointed with the outcome, I went to the web for some inspiration. I searched for "circles in design" in google images, and was very inspired — there were so many great ideas including a spiral bookshelf! Anyway, I came across this image of a business card and it just cried out to me.
Orange and lime green are not usually colours I would put together (too "seventies" for my liking), but they are colours that a friend of mine loves. She is a real fan of orange and has a collection of funky orange things in her home. And when she and another friend visited me in hospital, they brought some gorgeous orange tulips!
So… I decided to use the design of the business card (with some small alterations) to make a card for my friend Dylan ;)
After a little stamping and a lot of fiddling with circle punches, the card finally came together — and I am really pleased with the end result…

Stamps: Seeing Spots
Whisper White, Soft Suede, Pumpkin Pie, Kiwi Kiss, Old Olive
Ink: Pumpkin Pie, Soft Suede
Other: The full range of SU's Circle Punches
