Sentimental Sycamore Circles

...try saying that 3 times fast!
Different-sized circles make a fun, easy layout. No need to worry about lining anything up!
This card has been my make-and-take at several workshops and also at my team meeting last month:

I've used Not Quite Navy, Riding Hood Red and Sahara Sand for my colour combination, as well as some Naturals Ivory cardstock. I love the Naturals Ivory and Naturals White cardstock (page 160 of the catalogue). Not only is it a bargain ($12.95 for 40 sheets), but it is lovely and sturdy and has a subtle fleck in it.
The plaid patterned circles on my card may look like patterned paper, but they are actually stamped - with Beyond Plaid- on page 14 of the Seasonal Catalogue.
And just to show you how different the same layout can look, here's another version of the same card, this time using Sycamore Street Patterned Paper (Sale-a-Bration) and the Patterned Occasions Sale-a-Bration stamp set:

I've also used the pretty Sale-a-Bration buttons and ribbon to dress up this card.
My circles are all punched (2-1/2", 1-3/4" and 1-3/8") apart from the largest one which is cut out using the 3" Circle Die on the Big Shot.
It's been fun Sale-a-Brating with you!
