Star Studded Birthday

Time in my craft room still happens in fits and starts. The last few days have afforded me plenty of time there, which makes me so happy! I finished all of the cards I needed for occasions, so now I can work on building a stockpile.

Today I made a birthday card. I wanted to get away from floral because I use them all the time. I didn't stray too far - I stamped flower pots but used stars for the flowers.

I chose colors using ColourQ.   I love bright pink and orange,  especially at this time of year. I don't have Kraft ink or paper so I substituted with Crumb Cake.  I'm not a fan of the color and never would have chosen it, but I have to say I think it anchors the wild colors quite nicely.

I almost always use MOJO Monday for layouts.  Left on my own cards generally don't turn out looking too great.  I strayed ever so slightly with the background; I was afraid the card would get too busy.

Thanks for stopping by!
