Celebrate Today - CIC51

Yeah, I love Fridays! Thanks for stopping by. Here's my card for Kristina's Color Inspiration Challenge #51.

The colors this week are:

I loved the star-shaped cards Kristina and Shari Carroll created on the Hero Arts blog in March. I used Kristina's star template for this card. I'm going to make another star-shaped card soon. Try it out; it's fun.

You can't really see in the photo, but I embossed a woodgrain texture on the brown scallop chipboard like Kristina did here.

Have a good one!

Card Ingredients Stamps: Starring You (SU!), Polka Dot Basics (PTI), Hello Circles (Hero Arts) Paper: More Mustard, Rose Red, Whisper White Ink: Chocolate Chip, Rose Red, Whisper White craft ink, VersaMark Tools: Dotted Scallop punch (EK success), Stamp-a-ma-jig, Martha Stewart Circle Cutter Other: Clear embossing powder, white embossing powder, brown/white polka dot ribbon (Michael's), Brown scallop chipboard Thicker (American Crafts), foam tape
