Circle Circus?!

I had almost forgotten I owned this stamp set!  It is one of the few wood mounted stamp sets I have left.  I keep those in a drawer and always forget what I have in there. It's one of my favorites for making my own dsp so that is what I decided to do today for the challenges at The Paper Players and colourQ.
I loved these colors but I don't have the retired ones so I substituted in Pool Party and Pacific Point.  Circle Circus is such a great set because there is no way to mess up with it!
This card was so simple and I love the way it turned out!  I simply stamped the Circle Circle images all over the Whisper White cardstock and then used a circle punch to punch out the window for the sentiment. I cheated for the sentiment and stamped it on a scrap of Pool Party and then adhered it with Dimensionals. I knew there was no way I would get it lined up perfectly by just stamping it on the card base!  The Pacific Point panel is embossed with the Honeycomb Embossing Folder and then I used a Window Frames Framelit to punch out a frame for the sentiment window.  So simple!
