Operation Write Home Tutorial : STARBURST

Shannan gave us a tutorial on the STARBURST pattern on the OWH Blog and I fell in love with the quilt look her card had.  It would have been really easy to copy hers because she used so many great colors and patterns that I love, but I wanted to challenge myself by making mine a little different so I came up with an "All American" theme of red, white and blue and made it an appreciation card.

What a great way to use up all those scraps of left over patterned paper that I can't bare to part with!!!  This card was alot of fun and I really like how it turned out.  I am sure I will be using this starburst pattern again and again. 

I'm still working around that no glitter policy by adding in a touch of foil on the tag to make it stand out.


Supplies used:
Patterned Paper:  K& Company, Blue denim paper Coordinations
Die:  Verve American Hero Set
Dies:  Spellbinders Nested Stars, Fancy Tags Three
Ink:  Momento Rich Cocoa, Ranger Tim Holtz Distress Fired Brick, Faded Jeans, Pumice Stone, Antique Linen

Awwwhhh...this is super! Love the use of the olive instead of white and using the star as part of a layer!
