I am a little harried today because I have been without Internet Service for 24 hours.  Honestly, I was very concerned about getting my post done before I leave for Convention.

 As you can see, I chose to enlarge my circles so that I could use the stamp set Gift From The Garden.  Of course, I just had to use the paper from Farmer's Market.  It is such fun paper!

 The Work of Art swoosh provided a nice dab of color behind my garden essentials.  After inking the stamp with So Saffron Ink, I stamped off before stamping on the various circled cut with the Circles Framelits.

Images from Gifts From the Garden are inked with Old Olive Ink and stamped on top of the "swoosh".  A little stitching with an Old Olive Stampin' Write Marker adds a boundary for my circles.  A few Old Olive Candy Dots add a nice accent to the circles.

Using card stock from the Farmer's Market Cardstock Pack guarantees a match to my Designer Series Paper.  Starting with a 5" x 10" Hello Honey Card Base, I topped it with a piece of Blackberry Bliss card stock which in turn was topped with a beautiful plaid from Farmer's Market dsp.

My sentiment from the same stamp set is inked in Old Olive Ink & stamped on a small banner created with  Hello Honey c.s.  My card felt unbalanced so I added a trio of  Old Olive Candy Dots to the upper right corner.
