Papertrey Ink Superstar birthday card

Hello everyone and a very warm welcome to Susanne and Trish who are new followers this week. Thank you for taking the trouble and I really hope you find something to interest you here on your visits. How the weeks fly by and I can't believe Saturday has come round so quickly with another challenge over at LIM. This week we are asked to use brown and pink on a card and this really pleases me because I think these two colours look great together. Here is the card I came up with


It is difficult to see on the photo but I used a textured brown card and pearlised pink card. I embossed the pink strip with a star embossing folder and stamped the star patterns on the pink card with tricolour Tiramisu Brilliance pigment ink because that dries well on pearl card. I matted them onto brown star die cuts and mixed and matched some sentiments to draw the eye across the card.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a good weekend.

Hugs
