Starburst/Sunburst For The Christmas Card Challenge!

Hello Family Friends, and Stampers!
Thank you for stopping by today!
So great to be visited!
Today's Challenge is a 'Technique' Challenge!
The Technique is called a Starburst or Sunburst.
I went to the internet (YouTube) to get instructions on
how to make this kind of background!
I decided to make two a Christmas Card
for the Challenge and
a non-Christmas Card with the same 'technique'.
Just to show that it isn't just for
a Christmas Card!
I believe you will really like this technique!
By the way...this is an awesome way to use up all those scraps!

Here is the Challenge!

These are both very beautiful. Your christmas card is very elegant in those colours, I like it very much and the papers are beautiful. I must squirrel that idea away.
Thanks for playing along at Christmas Card Throwdown.

Your starburst card is gorgeous, the colours look wonderful. The sunburst is lovely too, what a difference the colours make - a splash of sunshine is very welcome at the moment! Thanks for joining in with the Christmas Card Throwdown. Lucinda (DT)
