It's a sunshine day!

Ahhh, I just LOVE the sun!  I am so glad it has finally arrived.  I am one of those people that is ALWAYS cold, so I am seriously feeling like I won the lottery. Seriously, if you know me you know that I take my blankie everywhere with me, including to church and restaurants. :)  A sunshine day called for a sunshine card!  The challenge at The Friday Mashup was to make one, so they must have KNOWN how thrilled I am with all this sun. :)
I wanted to do the starburst technique so I decided to keep the rest of the card simple to make it stand out. I could not find a tutorial for the starburst so I kind of made mine up as I went, cutting long strips of paper and then cutting them on the diagonal. I did this technique back in October but I have slept since then, so I forget exactly!  I sponged each piece of the starburst before adhering it to a piece of cardstock with our Permanent Adhesive Sheets and trimming the edges.  I then ran the whole thing through the Square Lattice Embossing Folder for some more texture. Do you spy the sneak peak stamp, Really Good Greetings? It is getting a lot of use already and I have had it less than a day! lol
