Round card

We were invited to a surprise 40th birthday for a friend and felt I needed something a bit more than a regular card from my stash to mark the occasion.  Although I was short on time, I was able to come up with something I was happy with.
I used Design Studio to weld two 4" circles together.  I cut an extra circle to go on the front of the card, but embossed with with my Cuttlebug birthday folder before attaching.  I then cut a scalloped circle from Mini Monograms.  The patterned paper is from Stampin' Up.  I used George and Basic Shapes to cut another circle from green cardstock and then cut one from white just a bit smaller.  I embossed the white circle using Swiss Dots.  The numbers were cut using Opposites Attract using the same patterned paper that I'd used for the scalloped circle.  I also cut a shadow layer for the numbers.  I attached three tiny silver brads to the scalloped circle.  The 40 was attached using tiny pop dots and then I popped the scalloped circle onto the base.
(I realized after this photo was taken that my numbers were not on straight compared to the base of the card with embossed wording.  I did fix that up - but neglected to take another photo.  Sorry!)

This is soooo pretty Kate!! Green is my favorite color.
I love how you used the embossing folder. I've always thought it was too overpowering, but you've used it perfectly!! Thanks for the inspiration!!

Oh, and the tiny silver brads were a great touch!!
