Center Step Birthday Greeting Card

I have been wanting to make a Center Step card for quite a while, but I don't like that most don't fit in a standard A2 size envelope.  Well, I saw a card on SplitcoastStampers that used does fit in a standard envelope.  It was made using a template by Connie Babbert, so I decided to give it a try!

This card qualifies for a challenge over at Dolce Stamps and Cards (DSAC06)

 I'm really happy with the way this card turned out.  The base is Bashful Blue, and the stamp set I used was Heard from the Heart.  The pattern paper is from a holiday pack of DSP that I can't recall the name of.  The colored circles are Riding hood Red, Old Olive, Chocolate Chip, and the pattern paper I can't remember!
 The center section is various circle punches adhered to a piece of white and then run through the square lattice embossing folder for the embedded embossing technique.
 The circles on the center section range from 3/4" to 1 1/2"
 Here is the side view of the card. 
One more look from the front.

Thanks for stopping by!
