Turning in Circles - CAS

This CAS card came to be because I was inspired by two separate biweekly challenges:

1. Sunday Stamps Sketch Challenge #122:

2. Inkspirational Color Challenge #104:

All of the images were die cut from two shades of gray cardstock and one shade of pink cardstock. (The Smoky Slate appears to have a light blue cast in the photos, but is actually a light gray.) The pieces and the "negatives" were adhered to the card. A few were popped up with foam tape. The inside of the card was lined with pink cardstock, stamped with a circular birthday sentiment and a few more of the die cut elements were added.
Take a look at the blogs and enjoy the SSC122 and Inkspirational104 challenges!
