Here's a fun birthday card for the current CASology cue word, party. Between the colorful party hat and the sentiment, I think I have the cue word pretty well covered.

To go with the hat's polka dotted pattern, I embossed a turquoise panel with dots. After edging the embossed panel with a narrow strip of red cardstock, I adhered it to the left edge of the cardfront.
