8/24 Circle Circus Fun

I've been immersing myself in the new "In-Colors." This card features Dusty Durango and Crushed Curry paired with Basic Gray. The base of my card is made from Very Vanilla card stock so I used that to stamp my circles on as well. One of the fabulous, fun things about the Circle Circus set is that it coordinates so well with a variety of our Circle Punches.
.
I was in need of a few monogram cards . . . just so happens that the letter "K" from Lovely Letters Alphabet fits perfectly into the open circle found in the Circle Circus set. As I was stamping this, I found myself wondering how many of the other letters would fit into this open Circle. Here is your answer: All of them but Three! M, Q and W are just a bit too big.
.
Notice the lovely texture on the Dusty Durango card stock? That is from the In Color textured paper pack which for the first times now comes in 8.5"x11". I love that new option from Stampin'Up. I gave the Crushed Curry a bit of textured with a quick run through my Big Shot machine using the texturz plate from Stampin'Up Backgrounds 1. I find that I can easily get a more defined texture by spritzing the plate with rubbing alcohol before laying my paper on it. I used to use water, but that seemed to curl my paper and it took a long time to dry. Rubbing alcohol dries very quickly and there is minimal curl.
.
To give the base of the card a nice stable feel, I added a strip of Crushed Curry Polka Dot ribbon. Lovely, yes? The gray panel is popped up on dimensionals as it the monogram.
