A little more LIM

On Saturday's a new challenge is set for us by Chrissie and Mandy of Less is More fame.   This week's theme is Circles and must include more than one circle.

Clean and Simple can look really striking but once you have the design in your mind's eye they are generally quick to put together.   This weekly challenge is fun but perhaps not as fulfilling as some of the inky messy grungy things you see here.   That said last Saturday saw me looking through my Tanda Stamps where there are lots of circles, these are the second and third cards made for the challenge.

Red card stock stamped in black and clear embossed with a Dragon from Dragons and Fantasy Set 1.    Greeting from Birthday Verses and then just a row of brads down the side.

Thank you Netty for suggesting that this would fit with Three Muses oriental theme.  Not entered this challenge before!

The second card is made using another stamp from the Far East 4 set and coloured with La Plume solvent based pens.   This time both the cat and the flowers are orange.   The additional circles are flat back jelly gems, and another greeting from Birthday Verses.

I find myself wondering what next Saturday will bring!
