Freshly made Sketches Challenge #32

Happy Sunday everyone! My card today is based on the Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #32.  I wanted to find a way to reward my kids for their honor role report cards (in addition to the A's money I already shelled out - ha ha).  The sketch this week worked perfectly for both my idea and this stamp set (which sadly will be retiring at the end of May) - I'm going to slip each card in their lunches tomorrow.  I had so many ideas for this sketch - I am definitely going to save it for my inspiration file for other cards.  Thanks Linda for a great sketch and the opportunity to play along with FMS.  Thanks to each of you for stopping by to visit my blog - I'm sure glad you did!  Happy rest of the weekend.  It's sunny here today - whoo hoo!
Details:  Finished card size is 5 1/4" square.  NOTE:  the Big Top Birthday DSP (122348), Take a Spin stamps set (121937 wood or 122015 clear) and the coordinating spinner hands will be retiring at the end of May.  This stamp set has 4 fun stamps (3 round and 1 square) that can be used for a variety of occassions such as birthday, thank you graduation, new baby, mothers and fathers day, etc.  The Game Spinner Hands come in a package of 12 for $3.95 (121893).  The 2 1/2" circle punch works perfectly for the round stamps in the set. 

Supplies (all from Stampin Up!):  Cardstock - Real Red, Daffodil Delight and Whisper white.  Patterned paper - Big Top Birthday (retiring soon).  Stamp - Take A Spin (retiring soon) - Game Spinner Hands are also retiring soon.  Ink - Real Red.  2 1/2 " circle punch (120906).
