Quick Birthday Card

I like to prepare some cards for my stamp class that don't require a lot of stamping or cutting, and I had a request for a feminine birthday card using circles.  So this is the design I came up with that was quick and also used the requested design.
My card base is Pink Pirouette Card Stock that I layered with a piece of Chocolate Chip Card Stock embossed with the Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder.  I then used my 1 3/8", 1 1/4" and 1" Circle punches with the Birds of a Feather Designer Series Paper for my design.  I tied some Pink Pirouette 3/8" Taffeta Ribbon and added my Happy Birthday Cake which I also punched out with the 1 3/8" Circle Punch. 
The Happy Birthday Cake Stamp is from the Pretty Postage Stamp Set that coordinates with the Postage Stamp Punch, but as you can see here on this card, it also goes with the circle punches too. 
The following were used:
Card Stock:  Pink Pirouette #111351, Chocolate Chip #102129
Designer Series Paper:  Birds of a  Feather #126899
Ink:  Raspberry Ripple #126859
Stamp Set:  Pretty Postage #123095 w or #123097 c
Ribbon:  Pink Pirouette 3/8" Taffeta #122981
Punches:  1 3/8 Circle #119860, 1 1/4" Circle #119861, 1" Circle #119868
Tools:  Big Shot #113439, Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder #117335
