celebrate tonight, come on!

Hi everyone,

Here's a card for a bunch of celebrations : birthday, graduation, retirement, new career, etc...

I'd like to talk about anchoring here : visually, it's always more eye pleasing to anchor small embellishments to an existing element on your card. Notice how all 3 stars are touching the main sticker as well as the borders. That is called anchoring. 

Another design practice is to draw the eye in a triangular pattern. On this card, the eyes go immediately to the main element because they are drawn to the three stars forming a triangle.


Have a nice stampin' day !!!
