Hello Hello


I've got a multi-challenge card for you today.  I started out with the colours from the Play Date Cafe.  I love their bright and cheery colour story this week.  Susan of One-Layer Wednesday has challenged us to use more than 5 circles on our card and Chrissie and Mandi at Less Is More are looking for one-layer cards with stripes.  I figured there must be a way to combine these and I ended up using my new (to me) Background Basics: Retro stamps from PTI which incorporate stripes and circles!  Using the PTI stamps also made this eligible for A Passion for Papertrey's stripes challenge.  A CAS four-challenge wonder!
Cardstock:  (Rustic white) PTI
Stamps:  (Background Basics: Retro) PTI, (Hello) Woodware USA
Inks:  (Pacific Point, More Mustard, Night of Navy) Stampin' Up
Gems:  (Bumblebee Assortment) Doodlebug

What a great take on the OLW challenge! When I say the sentiment, I started singing the song, "hello, hello, is there anyone in there?" No idea who the artist is? :) Fabby take on the PDC too!
