Stars & Circles

I have been asked to make a 65th Male Card and here is the end result.  I used "To The Nines" Designer Series Paper and teamed it with Chocolate Chip and Sahara Sand cardstock.  The star image is from "Spotlight on Christmas" (currently on loan from my wonderful upline Jane, thanks Jane!) and I stamped these in Chocolate Chip and clear embossed them with the Heat Gun.  I used various Circle Punches to create circles to layer behind the Star images and cut out part of a 1 3/8" circle on the right side of the DSP to reveal the Chocolate Chip underneath, to which I added the number 65 in Sahara Sand card.  My "birthday wishes" greeting is from "Wow Flowers" stamp set stamped in a line using the Stamp-a-ma-jig.  The bottom edges of my card were punched using the Corner Rounder.  I finished off with a tied piece of 1/4" Chocolate Chip Ribbon.
