Celebrate YOU!

Happy September!  This is always a fun month!  My Grandma and I celebrate our birthdays (I was born on her 50th birthday) and my hubby and I will celebrate our 18th Anniversary!  (How is that possible?!)  PLUS, we're celebrating a NEW challenge over at Stampin' Celebration with our NEW Design Team members!! I enjoyed playing along with this month's Inspiration Challenge and came up with this card:

I had fun with all of the circles, layers and little flags:

And here is the new Inspiration Challenge over at Stampin' Celebration:

As you can see, I used the colors and the circles on the cake for my inspiration!  I really love how these colors look together - I used Calypso Coral and Coastal Cabana. :)

I'm also linking up with the challenge over at Freshly Made Sketches.  Here's their sketch:

Products Used:
Stamps:  Best of Greetings (#133485) & Seasonal Sayings (#128009) - soooo happy this stamp set came back in the big catalog!  
Ink:  Calypso Coral, Coastal Cabana
Paper:  Calypso Coral, Coastal Cabana, Whisper White
Other:  Circle Punches (3/4", 1", 1 1/4"), 1" Square Punch (to make the little flag cut), Big Shot, Tasteful Trim Bigz XL Die, Perfect Polka Dot Embossing Folder, 2-Way Glue Pen

I think the hardest part of this card was gluing down those little circles! Thank goodness for my 2-Way Glue Pen!
