Birthday stars

Hi again, I've been doing bits of everything today. Made a really yummy date loaf with weet bix as 1 of the ingredients, it sounded a bit odd but tastes delicious!

 I wanted to add some balloons to this tag but my efforts at drawing or tracing things weren't much chop! Luckily I had this star die to use instead.
This card feels much busier than my usual CAS cards but I do like the stripey dp.

I'm linking up to the anything goes challenge at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday.

At Seize the Birthday it's an anything goes birthday theme with the option of a banner or pennants topping.

I used snippets of cardstock for my stars and die cut sentiment so I'm visiting the playground at
Pixie's Crafty Workshop. (The sparkly stars were "collected" from a dinner we went to and they had decorated the table with them.)

Papertrey Ink star die; Fiskars label punch; Penny Black Hooray die; versamark ink and silver ep for the tag edges; tiny sentiment sticker; glossy accents; silver cord and dp from stash.

Thanks for visiting,
 Cathy x

What a fun and festive card! I so love that tag with the stars on the end of the ribbons, so clever and fun! The strips on the base card add to the festive touch to this card. Love it! Hugs Brenda

Really thought you had picked out the colours on the stars from card you had that matched the dp. They do look fab on the paper. Hugs Mrs A.
