CAS-ual Fridays, Chipboard

TGIF!!!! I hope you had a fabulous week. This one was a busy one for me at work, so I am looking forward to a relaxing weekend. Is there really such a thing when you have little ones running around your house? Hmmm...sort of.
Today I have a card to share with you for this week's CAS-ual Fridays Challenge. The challenge this week is to create a clean and simple project using chipboard. Even if you do not have any chipboard in your stash, you can create your own.

Our fabulous sponsor this week is none other than CAS-ual Fridays Stamps. The winner of this week's challenge will win a $20 gift certificate.

Although I do have some chipboard in my stash, I wanted to make a birthday card for my brother-in-law using stars, so I created my own chipboard stars. I used a Papertrey Ink Make-it-Monday tutorial. I used some PTI coaster and die cut two layers of the stars before adhering my cardstock on top. For one star I inked up CAS-ual Fridays stamp set, Rad. The other I used some patterned paper from PTI. The sentiment is also from Rad. The twine is from The Twinery, the green washi is from DeNami Design, and the black washi is K&Company from their Smash book collection. The cardbase was first spritzed with some Mister Huey Clay before the card assembly began.
Here is another angle of the chipboard stars.
Remember that you have until noon on Thursday to link up and play. Thanks for stopping by!
