Stamp Something - Birthdays

I made this card yesterday just for fun and was trawling through the various challenges and found the card fitted this weeks Stamp Something challenge. Love it when this happens lol.

motivet-dexter
I have coloured Dexter with inks and twinks, still not brave enough to tackle animals with my Copics (what a wuss I am). I unearthed these papers from the bottom of a pile that I have not touched for ages. I used a Sizzix die to cut some stars (the middle size fits one of the birthday stamps in a Scrappy Cat set perfectly. I used one of the accessory stamps to stamp a star pattern on the large star. Then I wanted some star buttons. I know I have them but could I find them? Could I heck as like. So I heat embossed some star brads with gold embossing powder and used those instead.

Recipe:
Stamps: Motivet Dexter and Scrappy Cat Birthdays set
Papers: Dovecraft (I think)
Tools: Sizzix Stars die, SU Ticket Corner punch
Embellies: Star brads from an ancient QVC kit, Raffia Ribbon from Hobbycraft

I received this award from Moni, thanks so much sweetie xx
