my first attempt. . . .

at creating a sunburst card.  I have never tried this, but am happy with the results.


Since I will need another masculine birthday card soon, I think this will be appropriate.  It can easily be made more feminine with different papers/colors. These papers are from the MME The Station 6 x 6 pad.  I love the shape of this Spellbinders Nestabilities die.  I tried making a frame by using the next size die, but it was much too wide for my liking.  So, I just used the same size die and cut it in half to add a bit of contrast on each end of the sentiment piece.

The only challenge I know to send this to is Word Art Wednesday. 

edit:  will submit this to the Seize the Birthday with texture challenge, too.  Thanks, Theresa!

Have a wonderful weekend!

Wonderful card. I sometimes trace the outside of the nestie and hand cut for a frame, or you can even put ink on the inside of your die for an inked border as you cut.
