CAS84 - Inspired by a Birthday Wreath

I created today's card for the Clean and Simple challenge on Splitcoast Stampers. The challenge for this week (CAS84) was to create a clean and simple card inspired by this photo of a birthday wreath from The first thing I noticed about the wreath were the colors. So I grabbed a few pieces of card stock. Since the wreath is made of balloons, the next thing I thought of were circles. So I grabbed some circle punches. But what stamp set to use? As a surveyed by stacks of stamps my eyes came to rest upon my poor, lonely, still unmounted Itty Bitty Bits set. I decided it was the perfect set for this card. So I set about mounting it and that got the stamping under way.
