I think I AM Taken with Teal after all!

This is inspired by a card I saw in a Stampin’ Up! publication – it had different stamps but I changed it around to suit the supplies I had.

The circles were stamped with Fresh Cuts – I stamped a larger piece of cardstock with the large background stamp from the set and punched out the circles. I wasn’t sure about this colour scheme – I’m still learning to love Taken with Teal - but now I really like it. It does contain Old Olive, after all!

Cardstock: Taken with Teal, Ruby Red, Old Olive, Kraft
