Just Add a Sunburst!

This week at Just Add Ink challenge 205 - Just Add a Sunburst.
I knew straight away what technique I was going to use.
I wanted to made a Starburst/ Sunburst card, Dawn Olchefske has a video tutorial.
I have seen lots online, it's been on my to do list for a while now.
 I have used Quartrefancy Specialty Designer paper for the Sunburst.
I love the bright colours in this DSP.
I used 2 of the Daffodil Delight and Pumpkin Pie sides of the paper to make my sunburst.
I used the Sale-A-Bration See Ya later Stamp Set, I stamped it in Black Stazon on Whisper White Card Stock.
 I love this set, you can earn it for free when you spend $110 from me.
I punched it out with 2 3/8" Scallop Punch, then I sponged with Daffodil Delight and Pumpkin Pie Ink.
I added a heart from the Owl Punch and added a tiny Pearl Bacis Jewels.
I punch out a 2 1/2" Circle in Pumpkin Pie and mounted both with Stampin' Dimensionals.
I added Daffodil Delight 1/4" Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon lengthways.
I sponged the inside Whisper White Card Stock and 2 strips of the DSP.
Thanks Tina for the challenge, go and check out Just Add Ink and play along with challenge.
