Circle Circus, Clean and Simple

I normally like to put a little time into my cards (it's relaxing!), but occasionally I need to make something quick. This morning I pulled out my Circle Circus stamp set, blew off the dust (it needed some love!), grabbed a few ink pads, and stamped this clean and simple card. 
Tips: First stamp the sentiment, and then add your score lines. You can use Stampin' Up's Simply Scored tool, or the Stampin' Trimmer and stylus. My score lines are 1/8" apart. Then use a post it to mask the lines, and stamp your images. Sometimes I don't get a clean image along my mask line. When that happens, I use a Blender Pen to carefully fill in the areas.
I added Stampin' Dimensionals between the Basic Black layer and card base.
