After grabbing a few delightful papers from the new It's a Celebration Patterned Paper Collection, I cut some layers up using the new Birthday Journal Card, Celebrate, Zig Zag Stitched Circles and stamped some word play using this month's Sweet Incentive stamp set, Gift Greetings, that is FREE with your $60 order.  To finish off the card, I sprinkled a few sequins to add movement and sparkle.
