MIM #25 -- attempt #2

Here's my second attempt at this week's Make it Monday at Papertrey Ink: Decreasing Apertures.

In continuing with my "birthday theme" I made this card for Austin's best friend, Soren, who turned 12 yesterday:

I used Papertrey Ink cardstock (vintage cream), stamps (Boy Basics: Game On & Simple Circles) & dies (seeing stars). I also used My Mind's Eye patterned paper.

Thanks for looking!

Hi Leigh!

I thought I was the first one to use the stars for this challenge, but I think we made the starry cards at the same time, 'cause when I went uploading, I saw your card here! LOL! I love it! Love the patterned paper you used! Great card!

Hugs, Wendy

Love how you used the stars to create this card. The pattern papers compliment one another nicely. Cute card. My favorite of the three.

Love this card with the nested Stars. So clever. I like how you used the patterned paper, too.

Oooh, all are wonderful, but I love this one especially. Something so striking about the angles of the stars all lined up. Thanks for sharing!
