Retro Circles

#stampinup   I haven't played along in the Retro Sketches challenge in a long time. I'm glad that I have time this week to revisit and play along with one of my favorite challenges--I missed it! This week's sketch is really cute and I love the cards made by the design team.

I especially liked the cards made by design team members Sheri and Tracey. They had the same circle theme. Sheri used punched out circles, and that's what I chose to do, too. I wanted to use a bold sentiment like Tracey did.

I got out my Cherry on the Top Designer Series Paper stack because I love the bold colors and patterns. I chose Cucumber Crush as my focal color and I stamped a sentiment from "Birthday Blossoms" in Cucumber Crush onto a Whisper White scrap. I punched this out with the 1-3/4" Circle Punch.

Next, I punched a variety of circles (1" through 2") from a variety of the Cherry on Top DSP sheets. I arranged these on a panel of Cucumber Crush that I embossed with the Large Polka Dot Embossing folder. I added this to a Pool Party card base.

To finish the card, I punched a Crushed Curry flower from the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack and added it to the circle with the sentiment, using a glue dot. I then added the smallest Metal Rimmed Pearl. So cute--and so quick to make!
