Starburst Birthday CCMC288

Oh what a good color scheme we have today from Create with Connie and Mary:  Coastal Cabana, Tangerine Tango and Baked Brown Sugar!  I am really enjoying the new Starburst Sayings and Framelits.  We need a birthday card for a friend so this work perfectly.

The card itself and the top layer are both Baked Brown Sugar cardstock... I really love this color of brown!  The layer was embossed with the new Arrows embossing folder.. what a great design!

I place three strips of the new Retro Fresh Washi Tape onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock then  diecut it with the 2-3/4" Starburst Framelit.  The birthday greeting and background are both from the Blue Ribbon set and work so well with the Framelits! 

The 'Celebrate' from Starburst Sayings was stamped twice with Tangerine Tango and colored in with a Coastal Cabana Marker;  The celebrate was cut from the second image and layered on with Dimensionals.  I love how the Champagne Glimmer Paper looks with the Baked Brown Sugar color and the punch that it gives with the layering and the little stars strewn around!

I think this card will work for most anyone but I will be sending it to a male friend of ours; it's not too fussy but these colors are fun and festive, don't you think?  

Stamps:  Starburst Sayings, Blue Ribbon
Ink:  Tangerine Tango, Coastal Cabana pad and Marker
Paper: Whisper White, Baked Brown Sugar, Tangerine Tango; Champagne Glimmer Paper
