Metallic birthday star

Hi everyone, I racked my brains today trying to think of something starting with X, Y or Z for the 

Finally I struck on zig zag!
 I have a chevron die that I won ages ago at the snippets playground.
I diecut 2 and painted them with silver gelatos. Then I wove them together and used double sided tape to keep them in place on the back.

Less is More wants us to add some metal this week.
I die cut a star from a Quick Cutz metal sheet and coloured it with alcohol inks.
Apologies for the bright photo! I had to almost lay the stand flat to photograph the star so it wasn't too dark.

At Seize the Birthday it's an anything goes birthday theme.

At AAA Cards the theme is for the guys.

MFT chevron die; silver gelatos; Papertrey Ink star die; metal sheet; akcohol inks; sentiment sticker.
