Simply Stars Birthday

 You know, there was this card I had in my head but when I made it, it was really disappointing and not the way I dreamed it at all.  So a little tweaking of the color, then some tweaking of the layout then I checked my stash to see what DSP would go with what I had in mind and this Kaleidoscope DSP fit the bill the best so the card was changed again to what it became.  It was one of the four projects we made as part of my monthly stamp camp and it really grows on me.
The base card is Bermuda Bay, then a layer of whisper white stamped with the 2 stars in strawberry slush.
 I put a strip of  2"DSP on the right then put some stars punched from Silver Glimmer paper. Stamp the large Star from Simply Stars and punch or cut it out ( I would like to implore with Stampin' Up to bring back all the star punches!!!!)   Stamp the sentiment in black onto whisper white and color with markers then die cut with the Chalk Talk die then mount with Dimensionals.  So simple but a great birthday card for that girl or boy in your life!

Enjoy.   Lynda
