Simply more than one circle

Hi there . welcome to my room . Just a quick project today . If you are in need of a budget card then hopefully my card shared here will inspire you . See how you can use up lots of your scrappy bits of patterned paper . In this instance I kept to a flower theme with my scraps .
Oh and a little tip ,you may or may not think of .
Some of my scrappy bits are  like really , really small .And you know how hard it can be to punch small bits!
Well all you do is adhere a tag to the scrappy bit .

This tag acts as a handle and with it I could position the punch exactly over the image I needed without my fingers getting in the way of the veiw .
So onto my card which happens to be for a bloke who likes gardening from seed to flower /vegs .
I'm hoping it is right for
Week 24 - Theme    at " Less is More"

Please note that this is in the plural... we need to see more than one circle, so not just a circular card base or the odd circle thrown in just to qualify... we need you to think circles and see what you can come up with. Whilst you're thinking of your design however, we don't want you to forget the white space element and the CAS feel for your card."
And my card is ..

With Crumb Cake card base from SU and the 3D foam tape adhered sentiment from Dreams du Jour also from SU, I just added a collection of punched circles of floral scrap  paper. 
Thank you for visiting and I hope you call in again soon .
