Circles: "Less Is More" Challenge

Mother Nature had it right when the bumble bee was created.  Black and yellow are a great combination.

  Like most CAS challenges, when things come together quickly - it just works.  It took no time to put together the card base, cut, and ribbon.  Can't say the "congrats" was as easy.  Probably 3x longer to do the one sentiment, and I'm "meh" about how much I like it.  But that's the fun of crafting, trying new things to see what works!

  When its all together, I'm probably pushing the boundaries of the LIM challenge design rules, but I just love this cut for the circle design, so here goes...

Bazzill Basics cardstock.  Paper Lace and Wild Card carts.  American Crafts ribbon. Distress Ink in Black Soot.  Black Stickles.
