The Friday Mashup #76 - Starburst Christmas

Hello Friends,
Today's post is for The Friday Mashup Challenge this week.   Rita has challenged us to do a Starburst Technique and use the Sketch she has posted.  I wanted to try this technique, and as it came with a tutorial, here is my card, it was fun and easy to do and  very effective. We also received this lovely sentiment stamp from Arron at Stampin' Up's Perth Regionals and it just needed to be inked up for the first time.

Thanks to Rita and the Design Team at The Friday Mashup this card was awarded a Mashup Glamette Badge this week.

Freshly Made Sketches 1 Yr Anniversary - Retro Squares

Happy Monday Folks,
Today's post is for the Freshly Made Sketches 1 Year Anniversary Celebration.  We are to choose a sketch from the past and use it for this week. I have decided to go with Week 20. I used a new die from My Favourite Things called Retro Squares for my card, love the dimensional effect it has and then had to keep with the square theme until I made the flower. The flower petals have all been snipped further into the centre, embossed, sponged and then assembled after that I pinched the tips of the petals to give the flower some shape.

Stamps: S/U's Afterthoughts
Cards and Papers: Perfect Plum, Whisper White, Sahara Sand, DSP Sweet Slumber Speciality (R)
Ink: Stazon Black, Perfect Plum
Finishing Touches: Rhinestone Brads, Baker's Plum Lustre Twine
