Clean and Simple Day 2 - Part 1

Hello!

Oh, dear! Day 2 at Clean and Simple Card Classes is One Layer Cards! My nemesis! You would not believe the number of mistakes I made in my cards. In the end I gave up and have decided to show you the two best of a bad bunch. I really couldn't believe it, because lately I have made many, many one-layer cards that I have been very happy with. Obviously I was struck with performance anxiety, LOL!

Here is the first card:
I was totally inspired by Amber's mixed backgrounds cards. Unfortunately, I only have one set of background stamps, so it is a mixed-circle background card. Don't look too closely, and it looks really nice! I love this idea and I will practise more to perfect it.

I used PTI Background Basics: Circles, SU! Pumpkin Pie, and the sentiment is from SU! Trendy Trees.
