Polka Dot Happy Birthday card for Taylored Expressions

Happy Thursday to you! Super excited about the card sketch challenge from Taylored Expressions this week! With a fun card size and polka dots it just seemed perfect to turn this layout into a masculine Happy Birthday card! My take on the sketch features a whimsical sentiment from the Stampin' Up! Well Scripted stamp set, Sweet Pea DSP, and Circle Designer brads!
On the back of my card I added the Flourish hand stamped by stamp with layered circles to keep with the circle theme! I also added layered circles inside my card to cover up the 'brad legs' - but it's also fun to dress up the entire card for a finished look!

For some reason I REALLY like this photo I took of the card laying down! hahahaha! The Library clip at the top features a small piece of Chocolate Chip Grosgrain ribbon tied in a knot, then adhered with a Mini Glue Dot!
