Stars with Top Note



This is the card I made for Arielle's Color Q challenge. She picked really stunning colors once again. I haven't played along with this challenge for a few weeks, but today I had time to join in again. http://colourq.blogspot.com/

The colors for the challenge were: Real Red, Taken with Teal, Bashful Blue, White and Black. Of all these colors the one that I wanted the least on my card was bashful blue, so I just used it for layering. I decided to make a boy birthday card with top note and stars. I added crimping to all the Taken with Teal elements for some extra texture and interest. The designer brads fit perfectly with this boy star card!



Here's a close up of some of the layering, crimping and designer brads details.
Thanks for looking!

You used those colours wonderfully well on this card! Love all the stars....I really do need to get those star punches one of these days! Lvoe the brad in the big star and the use of the top note die. Great card.
