Happy Birthday


I'm trying to build up my card stash, but am not really succeeding!  Seems I've been making cards and immediately sending them. I guess that is a good problem!  I loved the color combination over at ShowCASe Your Style so I thought it would be fun to play along for a boy birthday card.  I pulled out my embossing paste to add a touch of texture with the stars.  Love how the thread gives in a galaxy type feel.

Happy creating!

Oh the embossing paste is fun on this card. Just had that sentiment out yesterday- I've got a pile of failed attempts over here...

Can I just say I love this?!!! The colors are perfect, as is your use of embossing paste, and those sweet little enamel dots. Dang! Just love the simplicity of this. It really packs a punch, and works for so many age groups. GREAT card. Bev

I didn't see this earlier to tell you how great I think it is but now I can say others think so too, since you're a style favorite at Showcase.
