Papertrey June Blog Hop Challenge-Sparkly Birthday

Good morning! I hope this post finds you having an awesome week so far. I survived Monday! And what a day it was! I finally got off my duff and made a card for the monthly customer blog hop challenge at Papertrey Ink. The theme is "A Touch Of Gold". I broke out my Papertrey Ink stamps and went to work!

I used the starburst stamp from Hello Sunshine and made a background, using gold embossing powder. They reminded me of little starburst mirrors, so I added a small gold sequin to the middle of each. I used the Boutique Borders Happy Birthday Mini set for the focal point sentiment. I embossed the swirls in gold and stamped the sentiment in aqua ink.

Thanks for stopping by and visiting. Have an   awesome day!

  14. We used the same stamp, the same way, and it looks so different on each card. A testament to Papertrey's versatility! Had to read your statement cuz I had to know where that starburst came from. Love it! And the way you used it.
