Circle Punch Challenge

   This is my inspiration card for this week's challenge at Get Inky!  The challenge's theme is Circle Punches.  Perfect challenge to use some of the great stamps from 
Get Inky. 

I had fun making this card. I found a pattern on Pinterest called a Step Out card.  You can find the tutorial for this card here

To create my card I used Get Inky's stamp set called Circle of Love.  This is a great set  and I used about 10 stamps from the set to make the card. To create the background I stamped different stitched circles from the set in red ink over the white card stock until I had a pattern I was pleased with.  I then layered the large circle sentiment stamp with layers of papers I cut with a circle paper punch and  added a large button and some flowers.

There is still  time to enter the circle punch challenge.  Just create your card and enter it here.
