Let's celebrate 40!

Oh my, I'm tired. The days leading up to the first day of class and the first couple days of class make my office like a zoo when all the gates are left open. I love the students but sometimes they are very, very needy. (I'm an academic advisor to upper class college students and they should know how to change their schedule!)

This week's Makeup 4 the Weekend challenge is for the main image to be a circle and to use 4 of the same embellishment to celebrate a 40th birthday. My card uses several things from The Will to Day Dream kit from Paper Makeup Stamps (found here). The cloud paper, the orange cardstock base, the wonderful wordart, and the fun "sun" are all from the kit. The green flowered dp is Provo Craft's In the Meadow and the buttons are from my button stash. I strung the buttons/flowers together with embroidery floss and used copics to color in some of the letters on the sentiment.

Have a sunny week!
