A Birthday Card inspired by Wanda

I was inspired to make this card by Wanda Hentges Joy to the World project on the truly wonderful  PaperArtsy blog where we get a constant stream of amazing projects.  I loved the backround Wanda made using PaperArtsy Freso Finish chalk acrylic paints and a credit card which is one of my favourite ways of spreading paint around.  I just had to make a backround like this.  Wanda was making Christmas cards but I made mine into a birthday card for my brother:

The stars are loose and dangle on the ribbons.

This was simple and fun to make.  Check out the blog for more inspiration.


  1. Oh this is so pretty! I love the pastel effect you have achieved!

  2. Fabulous background. I love that you used the technique on the stars as well.
    Blessing hugs,

  3. I love the background! It's beautiful....
    Really like the colors too. Awesome job!

  4. Awesome card, Susan. I love the dangling stars. I hadn't heard of the Fresco Finish Chalk Paints before this. They sure do make a beautiful background. Blessings and hugs!!!
