Starbursts for CCMC

Today I have a fun card to share that I made for this week's Thursday Challenge from Create with Connie and Mary.  They have a great sketch for us this week, take a look.

I love the simplicity of this sketch, very easy to stretch your imagination and open possibilities.  Lately, I have been thinking about using products in different ways than intended.  For today's challenge, I used the Good as Gold Card Kit with the Starburst Sayings Bundle.

I used two items from the kit, the note card itself and the envelope liner.  The note card was simply cut in half and used as Designer Series Paper.  Next, the gold envelope liner was cut down to make a banner.

Two of the Starburst Sayings stamps make up the rest of my focal point.  The largest stamp that contains the sentiment was stamped with Tangerine Tango and die cut with the matching framelit.  The second starburst is stamped in Bermuda Bay and die cut as well.  To add a little interest to the smaller starburst, I added a small Pistachio Pudding flower and a Tangerine Candy Dot.  Just those few elements and the card is complete!  I just love simple cards with bold colors, don't you?

I hope you enjoyed this idea of using a card kit in a different way, I sure did!  You can see more wonderful card ideas for this week's sketch over at Create with Connie and Mary.  Please join along in the fun and create a card of your own to link up!

Thanks for stopping by!  Happy Stamping!
