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.
