A super quick card with a fun look today.
Such an simple design created in a jiffy!  

I began with a piece of heavy white cardstock, then using one of the Marvelous Circle Masks from A Colorful Life Designs, I stencilled lots of circles randomly over my card front using different colours of DOX inks.  I tried to create a somewhat rainbow effect by starting at the top with the lighter colours and then moving down to the darker shades.
I splattered with some white acrylic paint to add some more interest to the fun background.
I die-cut the MFT Cheers sentiment twice and glued them together, offsetting them slightly for interest, then glued that over my circles.
I mounted it all onto a plain white card base.

Thanks so much for coming by and taking a look.

I adore the multi coloured circles Karen which have the look of bokeh about them, and the white spattering and die cut sentiment make perfect finishing touches. x

Love these circles...fabulous card! AND I saw in your list of supplies, that you are using a makeup brush from a dollar store! BRILLIANT idea. Just bought $10 set on Amazon, BUT really won't be using all those small brushes..Thank you! FYI...I have a Snippets section in Pinterest..just for your amazing work!
