Recycle, Reduce, Reuse!!

Hi All!!
Today I have a birthday card to share with you. It's centered around a polka dot theme because I picked up a 3/4" circle punch this week. The circles are all punched from a card that my mom was given recently. It had a pretty pretty sheen on both the pink and the white sides. Recycle! Reduce! Reuse!! eh? I think it's a great example of recycling :)
The ribbon casts a shadow onto the sentiment, so I took a close up as well. It says "wishing you a Happy Birthday".
There are subtle polka dots stamped onto both the white paper and the darker pink. The white paper has a light pink on it and the dark paper has a slight white stamped underneath the big dots. After I had made the darker pink section, I attached the lower light pink section. I noticed that the alignment was slightly off, so I added some more light pink along the top so that it was equal distance from the sides and the bottom. Easy peasy fix!!

Thanks for checkin' out my card!
