Starry Birthday Wishes

I just can't seem to put the Star Cover Plate away!! I made two masculine birthday cards here, and then I decided to try a more feminine colour scheme for my grand niece's birthday.

* Hibiscus Burst polka dot paper was glued to the front of a white card base. 
* I had a leftover cover plate (I used the stars from this on a card and still had the negative die cut on my desk). This was impressed with the Linen Impression Plate before being attached to the card front.  
* I have a basket of card stock scraps near my Cuttlebug, that I used to cut some stars. Ten of the stars were stamped with Harvest Gold ink using polka dots from Day-By-Day Mini Set and four were stamped with Lovely Lilac (Stampin' Up). These stars were inserted into the openings on the cover plate; the remaining openings show the Hibiscus Burst paper that was originally attached to the card front.

* A Double-ended Banner die was used to cut a strip of white card stock; the sentiment (Tea For Two Additions) was stamped with black ink.  
* Two Circle Scribbles were die cut from Harvest Gold card stock and then  glued together. 
* The number 6 (Block Alphabet Numbers) was cut from Hibiscus Burst polka dot paper, and two white card stock pieces, so they could be layered together. 
* Several pink and yellow sequins from my stash were scattered amongst the stars. Bitty Opaque Pearls were added to the center of each sequin and a few random spots on the card front.
