Simple circles

Greetings to my cyber guests, you are most welcome here - I had hoped to get this post up sooner but as many know, just sometimes life gets in the way!

I had to have another attempt at the Less is More Challenge, and the theme this week is circles, and I have been dying to ink up this stamp set that has sat languishing on my desk for some weeks without ever seeing some ink!!

The set is called Just for you and is marketed by  by The Crafts Meow.

As the challenge is for a Clean and Simple Card I simply stamped three circles down the side of the card and added the sentiment in the same Pearlescent Orchid ink, added the bow and three half pearls and it was complete.

I then used the same images and ink and altered the layout slightly, 

This time the ribbon was a different, more 'blue based' pink, and I used a mauve pearl, and the ink looked more mauve too.  Very interesting.

In this next photo you can see the pearlescent glimmer in the ink on the left.

And here is a close-up of the gorgeous bow

I was pleased with both these cards and I doubt if they took longer than 45 minutes for them both.

I am linking this to:
 Simply Less is More - challenge #24 - circles (top card)
And then I was so late posting this the challenge had closed :-(

Thank you for visiting , and please keep the comments coming, I love knowing what you think.
May your day be Blessed.
