Let the Stars Talk - Starburst Sayings


How nice it is to think that while twinkling the stars may very well be talking to each other?  I like to think so, and since this week I am with my daughter at her violin summer institute, I am inspired by all the music that the children play. It is just as stars talking and singing. I love it. To keep with the stars theme,  I put together a card to enter the Freshly Made Sketch challenge 146 before we got on the road, and what other than the Starburst Sayings stamp set could I use?  And paired with the Typeset Specialty DSP, it turned out a shout to the world!

All children make the world a better place, so I dedicate this card to them all. I hope you too have a little one that bring a smile to your face and warmth to your heart!

Tips and Tricks:
  • The DSP was cut a 1/8" smaller all around than the Basic Black Layer. I like having just a bit of layer showing as it accentuates the front layer.
  • I chose not to use two pieces of ribbon as I preferred the effect that the black solid piece gave to the card.
