Big Day Birthday

Hi Everyone,

I have another card to share with you today - I think I may be on a roll with this crafting thing lately!  I don't think I have posted this much in a long, long time!  Love it!

As always, I drew inspiration from a few challenges:

1. The Challenge

I haven't had a chance to play along with this challenge before but I had a lot of fun doing so this week.

2. The Paper Players

This was a tough challenge for me this week - to have the sentiment as the focal point.  I'm not really sure I pulled it off but I had fun trying!

Here is my card:

I used the new Irresistibly Yours Specialty DSP from Stampin' Up!'s Sale-a-bration catalogue.  This is such a fun paper, it is an emboss resist paper.  So I sponged a few different colours around and then wiped off any excess so that the stars looked bright and white.  I'm sure I will have a lot of fun with this awesome paper.

I don't know about anyone else out there, but when I was done with this card and looked at the sponged strip, it reminded me of Rainbow Brite...Lol!
