Seeing Red...and Spots...and Circles...oh my!!

I've really been wanting to do something fun with my new Circle Circus stamp set. It is a new set from the 2009-2010 Idea Book and Catalog that I got in my sneak peek order. It contains loads of different sizes and patterns of circles. I can't wait to be able to show you everything it offers!!
I made this card for a swap in one of my Korner Klub groups (a.k.a. Hostess Club). The inspiration came from a Technique Junkie tutorial called "Depth of Field". It uses three progressive colors to create a background, middle and forward focus of the eye, almost like creating faux layers.
Card Recipe
Card Stock - Real Red, Sahara Sand, Basic Black
DSP - Jackpot
Stamps - Circle Circus, Teenie Tiny Wishes
Ink - Real Red, Sahara Sand, Basic Black
I think this card makes a nice representation of how a little paper and ink can go a long way in creating a beautiful work of heart. You don't have to spend loads of money on embellishments to turn out greetings that you would be proud to give to your family and friends.
