Circle Circus - with a Flourish

Well I've finally made it back to blogland, I hope to visit more regularly.

Tonite I've been playing with a new colour combo that I really love:  Pumpkin Pie, Rose Red, Elegant Eggplant, Kraft & Whispher White

Card No 1 - was happy with this until I added the ribbon - too late now.  There's clear embossed circles that you cannot see too.  Probably would have been better if the flourish to the left was stamped in Elegant Eggplant to balance the card, still here it is:


Card No. 2 - These are such rich jewel like colours that were screaming out for a touch of gold, so out came the Gold EP (Embossing Powder)


Ok so now I've played with these sets - now on to the next - my Stampin' Up! Spring Mini Sets are calling out to me but my next workshop will fall before their release - hmmm what to play with?  What a lovely dilemma!

Happy Stamping
