Muse 61 - Happy Birthday!


A very CAS card for this week's Muse challenge, where the lovely Jacquie is our Guest Muse this week!

Here's her card:




I used the same colours (although in different proportions) and combined the rows of embossed stars with the fun vertical 'twizzle' elements (well, what would you call them?!)  to come up with my star 'explosion'. I used some new inks I picked up in a half-price sale from Clear and Simple Stamps. I love the Envy (lighter) green and the Glamazon Green! The sentiment is an old one from Michael's and the stars are from Verve.

I hope you'll get a chance to play along this week - the deadline is Monday morning at 8 am EDT. If you can't make a card, don't forget you can still vote - from Monday at 8 until Tuesday at 8. Results will be posted at noon on Tuesday! Hope to see you there!

I'd call them twizzles too, Ardyth! What a celebratory card ... the explosion of stars looks kind of 3D here ... don't know how you did that, but it's a fantastic effect! Anita :)

Great way to make a one layer twizzle card.

Awesome masking (right, you didn't stamp all those stars individually, not that it would surprise me at all?!) Bummed that I missed a half price sale on those inks. I'm shopping for a good set of inks to invest in.
