Well-rounded card?

I had a lot of fun with this card.  I took 3 challenges and mashed them together to create this colourful birthday card.  I LOVED the colours presented by colourQ and the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches and I couldn't resist the theme of the week over at CASology: CIRCLE!

Freshly Made Sketch
Aren't those colours just fabulous?!!  It puts in me in mind of warmth and beaches.....ahh....March Break is coming!  But I digress.  I've been having fun with my "Circle Circus" stamp set recently so I couldn't resist stamping circles in these colours.  Stampin' Up doesn't have Brilliant Blue or Cool Caribbean anymore so I used Pacific Point and Pool Party instead.

I'm really pleased with the result.  I'm a big fan of CAS (Clean and Simple) cards so this makes me happy : )  It's a little hard to see the sentiment so here is more of a close-up shot:

I wonder what it would look like with a different background colour?  Stay tuned to find out : )
Ink and Paper:  Midnight Muse, Summer Starfruit, Pacific Point, Pool Party, and Whisper White
Stamp Sets:  Circle Circus, Pretty Petites
Other:  Essentials Paper-Piercing Pack, Scallop Border Punch
Happy Stamping!
