This card is for a co-worker who reached an awesome milestone.
I started by embossing a piece of kraft cardstock that was marbled with red, white & blue paints (from my outdoor paper marbling extravaganza with Lauren last year) with a star embossing folder. Embossing Folders are this week's theme at Challenge Up Your Life.
Next I used the direct-to-paper technique with blue ink to make the stars stand out a little more against the background.
I die cut the Sizzix Tarnished Trophy from Silver cardstock & then printed the milestone before punching with a circle punch and matting with a scalloped circle (punched twice to look more like a ribbon award.
