Circle Circus Birthday

After doing so many cards for Easter and Mother's Day, I wanted to get away from using anything pink, with flowers, and ribbon.  I forget about some of those great stamp sets that seem to sit on the shelf, just waiting to be used.  So, today I picked up Circle Circus and created another masculine themed birthday card.

I started with So Saffron cardstock for the card base, followed by a layer of Soft Suede and Whisper White.  I stamped the circles all over the white using So Saffron, Soft Suede, and Garden Green ink.  Them, I embossed the two matte layers with the Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder.  The sentiment was stamped in Garden Green and layered on with two punches. 

Again - I apologize for the poor color quality.  Waking up to another dreary, rainy day without any sunlight does not make for great picture taking when you don't have a photo light.  That is the next purchase on my wish list, and hopefully I get around to that soon so you can see the true colors of my projects.

Cardstock:  So Saffron #105118, Soft Suede #115318, Whisper White #100730
Stamp Set:  Circle Circus #115778, Word Play #120308 wood or #120651 clear
