Flower Fancy Telescoping Circles Thank You Card

I saw a telescoping circles card a while ago and made a mental note to try one out.   They're great fun and easy to put together too!  If you'd like to have a go there is a video tutorial here on Barb's blog.  I wanted to send a thank you card to Sharon, the sweet lady that let me use her USA address for some purchases.  I used one of my eBay sets, Flower Fancy, and got to work with circles to make a telescoping card for Sharon.  I chose a cheery colour combo of Melon Mambo, Pink Pirouette and Wild Wasabi. 

Here's the telescoping circles card closed.

Here's circle 2 revealed.

And here's the card fully opened out.  The third circle is where I wrote my message.

I then stamped some flowers and leaves on the front of the envelope.  I do love two-step stamping sets and this Flower Fancy set is definitely a fave!

WOW! I've never seen anything like that before! It's amazing. I would have been looking at the front and never knowing that it opened up!
