Starburst


Do you ever fall in love with a single stamp and want to use it everywhere? The starburst image from My Mind's Eye's Lost & Found Two Sunshine "Lovely" stamps by Jen Allyson had me at hello. All the images in this set are so unique and beautiful, but that starburst image is spectacular.


I showcased this project yesterday over on The Project Girl's Blog along with a quick tutorial on repetition stamping.

The ever so talented Lynn is a guest designer over at Retro Sketches and created this beauty of sketch in which my card is based off of.

Love that starburst and the way you anchored your tag to the middle of one. The yellow looks fantastic on kraft, too.
