Birthday Wish Star

I hope everyone has had a wonderful weekend and enjoyed their holiday.  Despite the rain, it's been rather nice at home today.   I was able to get some cards done...yay!  I just felt like being crafty today, so I went for it.  Here's the first card I made.  I needed a different spin on a birthday card.

This little card is a scrap card.  I knew what colors I wanted on the card, so I dug through the scrap pile.  I used Honey, Sky, and Cranberry.  This card is  4 3/4 x4 3/4, simply because I have 5x5 envelopes.   I used the In the Background stamp set and the Geometric Background stamp set to add some interest to some of my scraps.  I wanted some patterned paper to pull it all together.  Of course, I don't have such a creature.  I could have 5,000 sheets of paper and it never fails, I don't have what I want.  But alas, the beauty of Close to My Heart is that we have inks that match our paper, so I created my own.  The floral paper was made using the Girls Rock stamp set.  I just random stamped a strip. I cut a star shape from some White Daisy cardstock with the cricut.  I then adhered all my strips of random sizes and colors in no particular order to the star.  I then trimmed around the star.  Voila!  A cute little patterned star. The strips were aligned straight across, but after I was done I thought it was much more fun to turn the star on it's side. I cut out two more little stars, tied a little hemp bow, added some sparkle, added my banner and called it done. 

I thought it turned out pretty cute.  I think it's the fun colors that draw me in.  I have a feeling I'll be making more of these.  They are just fun!
