The Cutting Edge Challenge #9...Stars

Wow...what amazing and wonderful cards were in the Cutting Edge gallery the last two weeks...thanks to all of you who take the time to be a part of this new is soooo fun to see all your different takes on the inspiration card....just wanted you to know we all appreciate seeing your creative artistry each week....thank you!!

It's time to share the next Cutting Edge Challenge!  This week's inspiration project is one of my cards.....

 You're to use my card for your inspiration for this next two week challenge, and create a card that includes die cutting (all forms accepted).  Whether the flowers, colors, layout...there are always so many different ways to be inspired, right?:)!!    Here’s what I created:

I decided to try some stars in place of the flowers, rainbow, of course, with a dark simply pierced background and dark, printed card panel like the original.  I layered all the stars and added enamel dots in the colors of the stars.  I also added a heart over the sentiment's heart and glossy accented it...FUN!!
We’d LOVE to have you play along with us! If you click on through to The Cutting Edge Challenge Blog, you’ll find lots of information, including:
