cQc #140, C4C140, CFC56 & Retrosketches #16

Hello Friends! With the less than summery weather today I had an excuse to stay inside and craft to my heart's content and was able to get several cards done today - Whoo Hoo!  It's been a while since I have participated in the ColourQ and Retrosketches challenges but today I am able to enter this card in both of these fun challenges and two others.  I am entering the following challenges:
Colour Q Challenge #140 - Real Red, Tempting Turquoise, Island Indigo, Lucky Limeade and White
Retrosketches #15 (see sketch inspiration below)
Crazy 4 Challenges #140 - Circles, Lots of circles
CAS-Fridays 56 - Polka Dots
I used some retired DSP from Stampin Up which is appropriately called "Celebrations".  You may have noticed that I like to use punches and die cuts on my cards, and this card is no exception.  I used the Petite Penant Builder punch for the hat, the Owl Builder punch for the two smallest sized circles, and the 1/2", 3/" and 1" circle punches.  I also used the Sweet Buttons Embosslit and the Top Note Sizzix die (I love when I have a chance to use this one) - all punches are from Stampin Up!.  The sentiment is from a SU set called Fabulous Phrases.  Of course no birthday party celebration is complete without a little sparkle so I added some red rhinestones here and there also.  Hope you enjoyed this card and thanks so much for stopping by to visit. Hugs!
