Circling Back Around

Mornin' y'all!  How's your day going?  I was very productive yesterday:  I made a list of things to do, and I got all of them done.  Woohoo!  After dinner last night, we went outside with our neighbors and picked cherries off the tree in our yard, so today's task will be to pit, chop, and freeze a giant bowl full of cherries.

But first, today's card.

How's that for a blast from the past?  I got Simply Circles in the first year or two after I started stamping, and I've had it for SIXTEEN years!  I knew it was the perfect stamp set for the Retro Rubber challenge:

Simply Circles is a set of six stamps, and I used all six of them on my card.  I also used the CASE the Designer challenge from Global Design Project:

I kept the basic layout and the gray/aqua/pink color combination, though my aqua is the more saturated Tahitian Tide; I thought the stronger colors worked with my funky retro circles.

Have a great day, peeps!

This is so gorgeous! I love the colour palette and I love the fact that you stamped the card blank too. 16 years!! It is amazing how long we have some of our stamps for! Thanks for joining us this time at Retro Rubber. Claire DT
