25th Birthday Wishes for a Beautiful Sister!

Just a couple days ago my younger sister, Esther, celebrated her 25th birthday! She is a beautiful lady inside and out. I'm so excited to be living just half an hour away from her soon! She is expecting her first baby in just one short month - can't wait to meet the little one!. A couple weeks ago, we were able to get together for a short time and snap pictures of our baby bellies together! 

To make Esther's birthday card, I used last week's RetroSketches challenge as a guideline:

I love the starburst technique! So easy to do! I put some simple instructions together a while ago in one of my blog posts - click here to see it. Since Esther has a bubbly, outgoing personality, I thought it would be fun to use bright colours and different patterns. Here's how it turned out:

And a matching envelope to complete it:

I love the colour combinations in this designer paper! 

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great long weekend!
