Blue, White, and Gold Stars on Red

A starry and bright card.  I like the stars twisting a bit, rather than layering evenly.  The embossed background adds a starburst effect. 

Edited October 21, 2016 to add: I wanted to use this design for a birthday card with the sentiment on the inside, so I replaced "thank you" with a strip of stars.  See below for the result, which I like even more than the original.  (The die is from Papertrey Ink super star borders.)

Card details:
  • Card stock is Papertrey Ink (PTI) pure poppy (red), stamper's select white, enchanted evening (dark blue), and sun shimmer (yellow-gold).
  • Dies are PTI seeing stars (three sizes) and photo finish strips.
  • The red dot is inlaid into the gold.  I used an old 1/4" hole punch to cut it. 
  • Embossing folder is the sun ray folder from Lifestyle Crafts/ WeRMemoryKeepers stripe set.
  • The sentiment "thank you" is from PTI keep it simple: thank you, stamped with PTI enchanted evening ink cube.
