PBSC - Starburst!

Good Morning!
This week at PBSC our theme is Starburst! I was a little stuck for this as I don't use stars on my work that often so I had to ponder over this theme for a while lol In the end I remembered that I had a stamp unused that would fit the Challenge. I used a technique of Heat Embossing on this card and decided to create my on Design Paper!
Unfortunately it was such a pain to photograph so it doesn't quite catch it all properly! I used 3 different Embossing powders - Gold, Silver Pearl & Clear along with a Black Inkpad.
Here is a piccie of the Design Paper before I cut it up for the card:


I think this would make a great paper for a contemporary male christmas card.

This card fits the Challenges at:
PAPER SUNDAES - CHRISTMAS IN JULY
CUPCAKE CRAFT - WISH UPON A STAR
CUTE CARD THURSDAY - FOR HIS EYES ONLY
STAMP SOMETHING - EMBELLISH IT
(You may of noticed that Dew Drops are one of my all-time fave embellishments!)

If you double-click the photo you should be able to see the lighter stamped layers better.



RECIPE:
PB Stamps
Embossing Powders by Heat It Up
Dew Drops & Ribbon from Stash

Thanks for Popping by & I hope you can play along!
Happy Crafting!
