Starburst Birthday!

I hope everyone had a great weekend!  We had a fairly quiet weekend!  Nothing too exciting which is always okay!  We had a cold day here today.  I think winter is trying to hold on as long as possible.  The long range forecast is looking promising so hopefully by next weekend we'll be feeling a little warmer!  I did see my first robin on Saturday!  Poor little thing was trying to find something to eat!

I had a few minutes in the craft room this afternoon while the boys coloured!  They were so happy to colour away!  I loved it!

I used this week's sketch over at the Paper Players and combined that with the colour combination at Colour Q!  I just loved the Colour Q palette this week!  Some of my favourites!

I have been dying to use the Starburst stamp set (and framelits) since they arrived before the March break and as soon as I saw the sketch at Paper Players I knew I could haul them out!  I didn't have any Going Gray on hand so I opted for some Basic Gray and some silver cardstock!  I used the Decorative Dots embossing folder to create the dots on the silver starburst!  I used clear embossing powder on each of the other stamped starbursts so the colours would be more vibrant!

Cardstock: Basic Gray, Whisper White, Lucky Limeade, Calypso Coral, Silver
Stamps: Starburst Sayings
Ink: Versamark, Island Indigo
Other: Decorative Dots Textured Embossing Folder, Arrows Textured Embossing Folder, Basic Rhinestones, Starburst Framelits, Clear Embossing Powder, Dimensionals

Thanks for stopping by today!  Have a fabulous day!
