One-Layer Simplicity....Simple Stamping

Simple Stamping.  You gotta love it when you can pull out some stamps, ink and paper and make a simple card that is also easy to mail.  This month at One-Layer Simplicity our theme is HIP TO BE SQUARE; use a square on your card. 
I haven't made a collage card for awhile so I grabbed some stamps and some Distress inks and started stamping.  This is what I ended up with....random circles and splatters pulled together with the sharp edges of the squares.  The sentiment is from Rubbernecker which I stamped in black Memento ink. 
The nice thing about this card is that it would work for man or woman.

Also adding my card to these challenges:
 
Simon Says- ANYTHING GOES BIRTHDAY
Simply Create Too- SOMETHING NEW (mine is the sentiment)
CASology- THREE

Thanks so much for coming by and taking a look.
Supplies:  stamps- Rubbernecker, PTI, Inkadinkadoo/ Distress ink/ Memento bl/ enamel dots

I love how you have stamped the squares over the circles - I would never have thought of doing that but it looks so cool! You could also enter this at CASology which has the cue card three this week as your sentiment has 3 words and is accented by those 3 enamel dots :)

Love the movement on this and the contrast of the round curves and straight lines!
