Paisleys & Posies . . . With Neither!

Hello Crafters!  Today I was playing with a new - to me - stamp set from Stampin' Up, called Paisleys & Posies.  However, I just wanted to use the pretty circle designs from the set and see what I could do with them!

I stamped the greeting first on to a panel of white card-stock and then used a colour combination of  'Tempting Turquoise', 'Melon Mambo' and 'Daffodil Delight' and stamped a pattern all around the sentiment.

I didn't have any 'Melon Mambo' card-stock, so I took my ink pad to some white card and inked the borders and adhered that to the centre of my 'Daffodil Delight' panel which was adhered to a white base card (I do this to save on coloured card-stock).

Next, I adhered my stamped panel to the front and finished with some shimmery dots and centres to the circles with my 'Stardust' gel pen.

Here is my card.

I didn't do a lot to the inside, I just  did a strip of yellow and a strip of pink at the bottom and stamped a couple of the images from the stamp set in 'Tempting Turquoise' but left a sentiment out until I decide what to use the card for.

Thank you so much for your visit today and especially if you have left a comment.  You are all appreciated more than you know!
