FM66 Olympic Circles

This week Amy is hosting the challenge at the Friday Mashup with an Olympic theme.  I love swimming and track, so I'm super excited to spend some quality U.S. pride time in front of the tele in a few weeks.  After watching the Tour de France, of course.  I'm suffering from some serious jet lag as I write this post... might as well get something done while up in the middle of the night, right?

So here is the "Mashup" Challenge :
1. Make a project with "the Olympic colour combination of Marina Mist, Basic Black, Daffodil Delight, Wild Wasabi and Real Red."
2, Or Make a project using "multiple circles"
3. Or "Mash it Up" and create a project with "the Olympic colour combo and multiple circles".

I couldn't resist trying to make a London-themed card.  Unfortunately, I didn't have any appropriate images, so I pulled some iconic images of London from the internet into My Digital Studio, sized them to a 2-1/2" circle shape, and printed from there.  I also printed my sentiment from MDS.  I feel like I cheated since there is no stamping here, but I love how the layout came out.

Paper: Real Red, Marina Mist, Daffodil Delight, Wild Wasabi, Basic Black, Whisper White; Accessories: 1-1/4" Circle punch, 1" Circle punch, Circle Scissors Plus, Square Lattice EF, Petal Cone die, Circles #2 die, Big Shot, My Digital Studio, Toothpick.

Thanks for stopping by!

Gorgeous card, Heidi ! Don't feel like cheating because there is no stamping, your London image came out great, and you combined all the elements on the card beautifully.

This is such a great hybrid card! I love how you included the images from London and included them in this. Your embedded linked circles are fantastic too! Thanks for sharing!
