One more card!

I'm baaack! And so soon! ;) Okay, so here's my last card to share for today. This one is for the new The Cutting Edge Challenge! 



At first, I wasn't so sure I'd be able to whip something up! However, I did and I must say I really like it. ;)


Okay, so this took a little bit of time and thinking. I wanted to use 'a star' or 'stars' because that was one of the first things I took from the photo. Then I saw the color and knew I wanted to have something bold. So, I ended up using a star die with watercolor paper, some distress inks and 'voila'. Couldn't believe my vision in my mind, worked! lol I 'inlaid' the die cut, which made things pretty seamless. And to top everything off, I thought gold sequins would go perfectly! :) So, what you do think?!...

Thanks again for stopping on by!
I'll be seeing y'all soon! ;)
