Circles of Change

When I first saw Emily's color challenge over at SCS today, I was like, nope! Real red, regal rose and so saffron just didn't sound appealing to me. Then I took a look at the ch allege gallery and was so inspired by all of the gorgeous creations made with these colors, so...I did it. I went to the mailbox and found my Unity Stamp Co. order had arrived!...this day just got better, Yes! I tore into it and simply had to use one of my awesome new sentiment quote singles. They are big enough to be the focal point of any card and I think they will be equally wonderfully on scrapbook pages too! Such versatility, I love it!
Now, I literally used every single one of my SU! circle punches--we're talkin' from 1/4" to 1 3/8" and it was fun! I added even more layers of circles with my pink rain dots from Gina K. Designs. I stamped a small flourish onto the clear acrylic flower and clear embossed it (not recommended-I almost melted the entire flower before the flourish set!) Hope you get a chance to play with this fun color combo too! Thanks for visiting me today, I really appreciate it! ~stampin' hugs and smiles~

Linsey this is just gorgeous. I love to get new rubbah and get it dirty that same day. Way to go. I also had a hard time with the colors Tuesday. This is just perfect.
