Caardvarks :: Circle Cards by Clear and Simple Stamps

Hey there, Bleeps! I'm back with a Caardvarks challenge...circle cards! This week's sponsor is Clear and Simple Stamps. I was lucky enough to get my hands on the Flight of the Bee stamp set. I really liked the honeycomb pattern and used it to create a background. I made a traditional circle card and another that featured a circle embellishment. Try your hand at some circle cards to and hop on over to Caardvarks to see what my teammates came up with! There are some cute cards out there using some awesome stamps!
