Today's Technique: Watercoloured Tissue plus Embossing.
I normally shy away from techniques that appear too involved, but I really liked some of the results I saw, so I went for it and so glad I did. I used TH distress inks for the very first time. I had enough of a section to cut out more stars that I will be placing on the inside. Also, I wasn't sure if this should be a Christmas card or birthday, so no sentiment yet. I added IBBG in gold to the white panel and sponged edges also. The largest star is on fun foam. Thanks for stopping by today and for a great challenge, Sabrina! ~Roberta

I love your awesome card and putting gorgeous your paper on the stars was a great idea. I like stars so this card was calling my name from the gallery to come and look at it. I think it could be either a Christmas card or a birthday card.

I'm loving seeing and being inspired by the colours other people have used. This is so beautiful, a lovely clean design, with the angled layout picking up on the stars. I'm glad you came out of your comfort zone to try this today, Roberta. It certainly is an inspiring gallery.
