Papertrey February Blog Hop: Monograms

Papertrey's February Blog Hop Challenge is to use monograms.  I had lots of fun ideas, but in the end went with the fastest and easiest...stationary.  Stationary always reminds me of my mother (she writes notes all the time...I still love getting snail mail), so I made it for her.  I just pulled out a bunch of stamp sets, drew a 1 3/4" circle and started stamping away (using this journal as inspiration). I did do a trial run in black ink to get an idea of where I wanted to stamp everything, but my time was limited, so I basically just winged it and hoped the colors would come out fairly balanced.
Supplies 
Stamps: CTMH (Chocolate Alphabet Small), PTI (Daydreamer, Happy Hexagons, Polka Dot Basics, Turning a New Leaf)
Ink: PTI (Berry Sorbet, Spring Moss), SU (Baja Breeze, Chocolate Chip, So Saffron)
Cardstock: Rustic White
