A sunburst card

As a card maker, I am not very good at complicated things and complicated instructions. But sometimes it is fun to try new things, so when the design team at ABC Challenges invited me to be their Guest designer this week, I delved in to a new kind of card. The challenge this week is to case a DT card from the past. I chose the sunburst card by DT member Danielle in the ABC 49 challenge

 As I had never tried a sunburst card before, I was a bit skeptical on how successful I was going to be. But I am really happy to report that it is so easy.This is what I came up with

I retained the basic pattern while changing it from a Halloween to Christmas celebrations. The papers are all from DCWV and the stamp is, of course, Magnolia Tilda- sitting angel. All the panels are distressed with Tim Holtz vintage photo distressing pad.

 The two layered stamps are both from Justrite Christmas collection. I love " The magic of Christmas" stamp and tend to use it way too often :)

 The inside is lined with DCWV Christmas collection paper and decorated with the Memory Box dies.
