My 1st Design Team Post for Use Your Stuff

Hi you all and welcome to my blog :) I have some news to announce today :) I have made the design team over at Use Your Stuff. This is my very first challenge with Use Your Stuff and it was a challenge for sure, it's using tissue paper on your project :) So I had not done anything with tissue paper before that I premade, so I want to Google for a bit of help. Got 3 different options and you will see all 3 on my card
 The big fun green polka dot flower is tissue paper :) So festive so I knew then I was making a birthday card :) I've got quite a few birthdays this month so it's great to get started on them.
 Another view of the tissue flower I added stickles here and there on the petals for so me glitter too.
And the inside of the card all ready to have the sentiment attached to it.
So where was the tissue paper? Any where you saw the green with polka dots. I did the flower, I used a punch for the stars (the secret is several layers) and the tissue paper technique I found on youtube for the sentiment portion (just a cool way to add texture.
Thank you for stopping by today and I look forward to seeing what you create for this fun challenge over at Use Your Stuff.
