Seize The Birthday Challenge - Anything Goes

Happy Thursday my stamping friends.  This is my second post as a member of the new Design Team at Seize the Birthday and it is time for a new challenge.  Check it out HERE and join in the fun.   It is an "Anything Goes" challenge as long as it is a birthday project.  Need a sketch to get started then visit our sister challenge at Seize The Sketch and link up to both challenges.  We look forward to seeing your creations.
I am using the current sketch from Seize The Sketch #2 for my card.
I tried a technique I have seen quite a lot lately and wanted to give it a try.  It is called Starburst and Dawn Olchefske has a video tutorial on her blog here.  I used paper from the Simple Stories Vintage Bliss 6x6 pad for my starburst, Canvas Corp Heavy White Cardstock, and SU Regal Rose and Baha Breeze CS.  I used the SU Dotted Scallop Ribbon border punch for the the Baha Breeze strip. The sentiment is from SU Perfectly Penned stamped in Basic Gray ink.  I hand cut the little banner at top and added a pink heart button from my stash.  That's it for my card.

Thanks for stopping by.  I appreciate your comments.
