A fun card

Have you ever that have this idea and you can't wait to try it...and then it works just like you imagined? So many times reality doesn't quite match up to what's in my head, but this time the stars were aligned and I love the results!

I've been seeing a lot of these stars everywhere lately and thought they'd look great on a card. They do, although they don't fit into an envelope! Super easy to make, if a bit fiddly, but no one's looking closely, right?
The colour scheme was a 'have to play with' - I saw the bright, fun colours and just had to play along.

Sketch - Cards und More
Colours - Color Q
All things bright and beautiful - By the Cute and Girly (bright, colourful stars!)
Anything Goes - Creatalicious Challenges
Anything Goes - Crafty Ribbons
Anything Goes - Cute Card Thursday
Backgrounds - I Brake for Challenges (I stamped the white center area)
Anything Goes - Papercraft Star

Edited to add: I did not create these stars and if you hunt around you can probably find videos, but a few people have asked how I made them. Take any size star, score the red lines on one side, flip and score the blue lines on the reverse. Then it's just a matter of accordion folding it into shape. Clear as mud, right?
