Birthday Stars

We're only four followers away from adding to the blog candy prize package! Be sure to check it out and get in on the fun!

Today's simple card was made for the Pals Paper Arts Challenge - Stars. I know, it's been a while since I've been able to play along! I know I'm usually inspiration photo oriented, but this time I decided to go with a non-patriotic card so it would be a bit more versatile. (P.S. If you want a real interpretation of the inspiration pic, check out guest artist, Nicole Watt's card. Perfection!)

Here are the DEEtails:

I actually don't have a whole lot of star options in my supplies. I guess I'm more of a butterflies, hearts, and flowers kind of girl. :) When I raided my stash, I found these fun little button stickers and thought they would be a perfect touch to a clean and simple card. I started with a Daffodil Delight card, wrapped some Pumpkin Pie Grosgrain around it and adhered the sentiment from SU!'s Bring On The Cake stamped on new Lucky Limeade card stock. I actually tried to paper piece the letters in Birthday with some fun DSP, but my cutting blade wasn't very sharp and the letters became messy (can you guess what's on my wish list now?). It's a little on the boring side, but it will have to do. I strung up my buttons with some White Twine and adhered them to my card. I love the way the buttons tie all the colors together.
