LIM24 round and round in circles !!!

Hi crafty people, it was a bit wet here today, a stark contrast to yesterday which was totally brilliant, wall to wall sunshine:0) Less is More is all about Circles.
 This is what the Ladies had to say
We have a theme which this week is 
CIRCLES
Please note that this is in the plural... we need to see more than one circle, so not just a circular card base or the odd circle thrown in just to qualify... we need you to think circles and see what you can come up with. Whilst you're thinking of your design however, we don't want you to forget the white space element and the CAS feel for your card.

 
                                                                             I used Anna Griffin DP from my stash, nesties to cut the circles and TH embossing folder circles. Some card candy from Craftwork cards and a small amount of Bazzil card stock. I also used Isa Norris' stamps from KatzelKraft,  English notes

Had fun with this one, I may have a go later with stamps, have an idea I'm mulling over:0)

Pop over and check out the LIM challenge it's loads of fun:0) Thank you again Chrissie and Mandi, another interesting challenge.
                                     
p.s There's a new challenge over at the Craft Barn today, pop over and check it out, if you have time there is a £15 voucher to be won, all about alcohol inks, great opportunity to get  inky again, Gay x

Two wonderful cards Gay!! Clean and simple.. I like it!
Have a nice day.
Hugs Nicolet

Chrissie said...

Both of these look great Gay, I particularly like the embossing on the first one.
One thing which has me puzzled when I see cards with bits which extend beyond the edge of a card base, is how you fit them into an envelope. Do you make an oversized one specially?
Thanks so much

These are both stunning. I adore Anna Griffin's stuff she has such an eye for vintage design.

Debgem said...

Gay - these are super - I really like the first one with the deeply embossed border of circles. And I love the mix of papers and circle sizes on the second one. Both have lovely texture. Here's mine!

Joyce across the Pond said...

Two excellent cards...Anna Griffin would be proud of you...I just love them both...have a weakness for her papers as well but used much like you have rather than the busyness of the cards she makes. Of course the kind she makes uses more card lol!!!

Faith A said...

Amazing cards Gay, especially the second one. I would never have dreamt of using shabby chic/ vintage papers this way but they work beautifully.

Tejal said...

I love the embossing folder on the first one!! cute!! need to give this one a try too!!!

GinaA said...

You have some fantastic ideas. lOve the square frame to set off the Rose circle, and the embossing showing through just sets it off so well.
