Starry birthday

Hi everyone,

Thanks for stopping by today, please do make yourself at home :)

The card I'm sharing is one of two that are identical and was inspired by my first July 4th themed creation, the Patriotic candy cup I shared with you yesterday (although there's no red used in this one) and also a recent Thank you card.

I've used textured navy card for the mats and stars, and sponged copper ink over the embossing to highlight it and give a distressed look. The embossing folder I've used is a Sizzix one that came as part of the bundle with my BigShot, so unfortunately I can't remember the name, sorry! The design was completed with a gold peel off sentiment.

I'm really hoping that both guys like their cards, and that you do too. I'd love you to leave me a comment :)
