Fall To Layout 53 - Forever and Always

I love the Clean and Simple Stamping blog by Natasha and the girls. They have great "fall to" layouts and colors and do a "10 minute monday" feature! Great stuff if you love Clean and Simple stamping!
I really liked the Fall To Layout 53 and decided to give it a whirl (hmmm, my new fav. word). Since I don't own that uber awesome medallian stamp from Stampin' Up (it is awesome!!) I had to get creative. I combined a number of clear stamps from Papertrey Ink to create this circular image in Vintage Cream ink. I simple drew a circle on the green designer paper for placement and erased it when I was done. An addition of a center piece and sentiment makes for an elegant yet simple card.
Supplies: Stamps: Demask Designs, Guide Lines 2, Corners and Borders {circles}, Wedding Day, First Fruits (all Papertrey Ink); Ink - Vintage Cream (Papertrey Ink), Basic Black (SU!), Olive Pastel (ColorBox); Paper - Vintage Cream, True Black (Papertrey Ink), Back side of Limeade (WeRMemory Keepers); Other - 1 1/4" circle punch, pencil.
It was so much fun creating this circular image by combining all those stamps! I just might need to create a few of these in different colors!
Thanks for dropping in!
