Beaded Sparkle Burst Stars

Sparkle Burst Birthday

Today's card is a little bit festive and a little bit elegant and features the Sparkle Burst Stars and Vintage Happy Birthday dies.

Bead Closeup

I die cut the Sparkle Burst Stars die a few times out of navy card stock and then adhered the panel to some double sided adhesive so that the negative die cut spaces would be sticky.  I added gold micro beads to the negative spaces to complete the design. Love the texture from these little beads!
