Now when you see my card you might wonder how was it inspired by the above picture? Well, let me tell you! I really like how the flower petals were different colors and especially where they overlapped with other petals. So i went through my whole stamp collection and do you think i had a nice big open outline petal flower??!?!! That would be a no!!! In fact i really didn;t have anything big enough with open spaces, so instead i went with the small starfish from Lawn Fawn! It;s a little hard to see the overlap, i did a lot of experiments to make sure i like it, and overlap at the stars tips looked the best!

Anyway, on how i made the card! I started with vellum and stamped the starfish over the vellum panel. When i started i thought i would fill the whole panel, but as i went along i decided i didn;t need to fill the panel! Then i added some white embossing powder and heat embossed it. I also stamped and heat embossed the I'm So Jelly sentiment.

Then i flipped it over and used my Spectrum Noir markers to color in the starfish. I used these colors: BP2, JG2, CT4, OR2, DR3, BT5, PL4, True Black. So i wouldn;t have any glue spots, i ran my colored vellum panel through my sticker maker and then adhered the panel to a white card base.

Next i trimmed some black card stock and stamped and heat embossed the You're a Star sentiment, then added it across the card with foam tape. Last i stamped and heat embossed the little Jelly Fish on some vellum. Turned him over and colored him with the PL4 marker and fuss cut him out and added him to my card.
