Starry Birthday

Hi there guys,

I have a new CAS card to share with you today - following a sketch, and using a bit of Iris Folding to make a 3D element for the card.

I cut a stripe of glitter card and added star border peel-offs to each side. I used a die-cut star and Iris folded the aperture to create the 3D element for the card, using a pearlescent bronze paper, a watercolour orange paper and a Christmas tartan paper. I then added a bow and a sentiment to the star before adhering to the bottom of the glitter strip.

Here is a close up of the star:

I followed the sketch from Atlantic Hearts #239 -

I would also like to enter the following challenges:
613 Avenue create #203 3D card
Addicted to CAS #124 Bows

I also have a fish tank update for you today @175hr21
Thanks for looking all,
