Less is More 24, Take 2

It seems I'm making up for lost time since I got back from my trip. Unfortunately that means I'm not getting much sleep, either, but Less is More Challenge 24 has put circles on my brain!

Last year I purchased a set of four super cheap Studio G stamps (2 circles and 2 squares) on clearance. I wasn't sure what kind of impression I would get, but last night I decided to stamp them up for the first time and they stamped beautifully!

I'm happy with how these cards turned out. I think it's a simple but striking layout that I will use often for many types of cards.

Happy Anniversary: Brilliance graphite black on PTI white and Raspberry Fizz, PTI sentiment


Happy Birthday: VersaMagic Spanish olive on rustic white and ripe avocado, PTI sentiment


How Kind of You: Brilliance pearlescent rust on PTI white, Rubber Soul sentiment

I'll change this last one to a colored card base, I think.
