Basically Fabulous

Today I'm sharing a card I created with the Uptown fundamentals from the Basics collection. But these papers are so much more than just basics.
Uptown Fundamentals Z3263
The black and white (and grey and white reverse side) patterns are neutral yet bold. The vellum and gold foil are great accents that go with any color palette. 

For my card I paired the black and white paper with gold foil, which I cut into a star banner with my Cricut, and sea glass cardstock. I used white embossing powder so the "Birthday Wishes" sentiment would show up on the black paper. And for more sparkle and glitz I added a strip of sea glass glitter paper and gold shimmer trim. My daughter said it looks like a night sky party!
