FTTC192 Happy Birthday

Hi there. Hope your week is off to a great start. It's Timeless Tuesday time and Amanda is our hostess this week. She's challenging us to make a birthday card/project, which is perfect timing, as I need three birthday cards for next week.  :)


I've wanted to try making one of these starburst cards for sooooo long and I finally decided to give it a try. Fun!  I'll definitely be making more of these.  I used Flourishes' brand new Sentimental Favorites and stamped the birthday sentiment inside a die-cut Spellbinders star, which is popped up on foam tape.  I added some Kaiser Pearls and colored them with a YR16 Copic.  The papers are My Mind's Eye Mother's Love. The card base is Flourishes' Classic Ivory CS.

***Edited to Add***
Here's the tutorial I followed on making the starburst. It's from Shannan Teubner's blog: CLICK HERE

Be sure to stop by the Timeless Tuesday blog for all the details of the challenge and, of course, you can find even more inspiration by hopping around to see what the rest of the FTTC girls have created for you....

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
