Blue Circle Circus- CCCCAct 1 and SSSC28

Hello! Stacey has her new Curtain Call Color Challenge, Act 1 up on her blog and what a great inspiration piece she has! I decided to pair her color challenge with Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch challenge, number 28 (what a different sketch for me!).
Stacey's colors this week were Night of Navy, Not Quite Navy and Whisper White. When I saw Karen's sketch, I didn't know what I was going to do with the circles, but then I thought of the stamp set in the new catalog that I just got, Circle Circus and knew it would work great! So here is what I came up with. Pretty simple and quick card, but I think it works!
I stamped the Canvas background stamp with Not Quite Navy on the Not quite Navy card stock and then stamped two of the circles in Night of Navy and one in Not Quite Navy on Whisper White card stock and then used a few of my circles punches and punches them out. I mounted them with a few dimensionals and added them to the card. The sentiment is from the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set and it was embossed with White embossing powder.
Here is a close up of the Canvas background stamp and the circles on dimensionals.

Thanks for looking!
