Modern Medley Starburst

Hope everyone’s holiday weekend has been a relaxing and fun one.  It was quiet around here today.  I spent most of my day in my stamp room.  I spent yesterday afternoon with my favorite daughter (I only have one).  We went downtown and had a nice lunch and caught up on each other’s lives.  It had been a few weeks since we spent more than 5 minutes in the same room.  After lunch, we did a little shopping and then it was home to relax the rest of the day.

Life’s been pretty hectic since I went back to work 3 weeks ago, but I am finally getting back into the routine and I should be able to get a little more stamping done than I have been.  A short trip is in my future as my husband and I head off to see my cousin and his wife who are celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary.  I was 6 years old and a flower girl in their wedding when they got married.  I think 50 years is an big milestone since most people don’t make it that long!  I am looking forward to reacquainting myself with family members that I haven’t seen in a few years.

Today, the card I am sharing is my first attempt at making one of those starburst cards.  I think I did all right with it except for one thing.  Can you see what it is that I did wrong?  If you can’t then I won’t point it out.  Just remember…I’ll be doing another one soon and then you can put them side-by-side to compare.  Here’s the card and what I used to create it.  I think I will have to do a tutorial on it my next post.  Anyway…
