Starry Birthday Wishes

Hi there,

well I managed to combine another two challenges for this one - so I'm being very efficient at the momment. I used the latest Mojo Monday sketch and then Makeesha's latest colour challenge. Here they both are:

Initially I had flowers of some sort planned but when I opened up my stamp cupboard my eye fell on In The Stars and I thought I would try and see what I could do. I originally bought this set because I thought it would be really useful and versatile but have found it strangely hard to work with. This is in fact the first time I have really used it. After a few permutations - I tried stamping stars in all the colours as background, then as a panel, then three feature stars I finally came up with something that I think actually works. I did jiggle the sketch a little, just plain forgot to add a ribbon on the small panel and moved the accent trio on the LHS. Its pretty straightforward - one point to note is the white embossing of stars over the Bali Breeze DSP, on the lower panel. OK here is the card...

In The Stars
Card St
ock: Purely Pomegranite, Whispher White, Pumpkin Pie, Regal Rose
Ink: Pumpkin Pie, Purely Pomegranite, Regal Rose, Versamark
