Birthday Star!

Hi everyone,
It's a long weekend here for the Queen's Birthday, so I'm making the most of the break and getting some cards that I need done.

I was inspired by the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches for this card.
I'm not very good with sketches so this one is a literal interpretation lol!

The star was diecut from a leftover piece of acrylic paint scrunched with clingwrap from an earlier project. The sentiment diecut was covered in versamark ink and then aged black frantage embossing enamel was sprinkled on. I love how you never know what the colour of it will be until you finish heating it!

I'm also linking up to the 4th Birthday challenge at AAA Cards, congratulations on reaching that fabulous milestone!
I've left blank space on the edges of my card so I'm hoping it's CAS enough.

I'm also linking up to the anything goes option at Seize the Birthday,

 the embossing challenge at CAS on Friday, I've used both wet and dry embossing,

For your blog

and the anything goes dies challenge at Happy Little Stampers.

Love the frantage on the sentiment and the dry embossing looks great on your Star card. Great effect two with the technique on the star. x
