Baby You're a Firework !

This week the challenge over on Cute Card Thursday has the theme 'Baby You're a Firework (use glittery, sparkly firework colours).  Our prize Sponsor for this week is The Stamp Shoppe.

You can interpret the theme however you wish, I decided to create the effect of fireworks bursting in the night sky for my design.

I started with the sentiment, stamped using a Kaleidoscope inkpad, it's by TPC Studio, huge thanks to my pal Kathy who kindly allowed me to stamp up some of her images when I visited last weekend and for reminding me of the manufacturer.  I then cut it out using a nestie die before attaching over a layer of metallic black card.

When I first saw this set of Marianne's dies, this flower shape reminded me of starburst fireworks, so I used it with various colours of metallic card to create the effect I wanted.  With the stem trimmed off, I do think they work, what do you think?

Purple Stickles around the edges of the layers just adds a touch of sparkle to the design.  Let us see your Firework cards, leave a link to your project on the CCT blog to be in with a chance of winning this week's prize.
