Bright Stars

Hi and welcome!  Today's card features some inlaid die-cutting and uses the sketch from CAS(E) This Sketch and the colors from Color Throwdown as well as Anything Goes theme at Seize the Birthday.



The colors aren't as bright as they are IRL, but I used some new inks I bought from Simon Says Stamp.  Because I don't have the matching cardstock as yet, I inked up some white card with the challenge colors before die-cutting with the Star Parade die, also from SSS.



This card could work in either portrait or landscape position.

Thanks for visiting.



Products used:

Stamps:  Say it in Style (Clearly Besotted)
Inks:  Sunshine, Burnt Orange, Green Apple, Blue Violet (SSS) Versafine Black Onyx
Cardstock:  White
Accessories:  Star Parade die (SSS)

Cheers
Karren

Edited to Add:  This card got a mention at Color Throwdown.
