Seeing Circles

I love using circles in my cards and page layouts, so when I discovered that this week's Less is More challenge required them, I decided to make it into a Christmas card. I cut a circle in the card front, then cut a circle frame out of red cardstock to give it a finished look. The circle image I stamped in red ink and heat-embossed using holographic embossing powder. I really wanted to add more "stuff" to this card, but since the idea is clean and simple, I chose instead to add only a faint whisper of green and yellow stickles to the stamped image on the holly and stars only. It's a very subtle effect and I hope you can see it in the second picture.





Thanks for looking!
