Verve Seeing Stars & Color Throwdown Challenges

The monthly challenge at Verve is to make a card or project using the Seeing Stars set. I decided to combine that challenge with the Color Throwdown #100 challenge. PS - They have tons of awesome prizes they are giving away, one of which is a Verve prize so make sure you check it out!

So the color challenge is to use the following:
I had some real troubles using the pink...but I love the other colors! I started to make a card, but ended up making a gift tin for my boss's birthday!

I love this set from Verve...the stars are so fun...but I definitely need a star punch to go with it. I thought I had one, but after much searching I couldn't find one (I recently moved my stamping area and thought it was organized - LOL!) So I cut out all of the stars in Certainly Celery & Baja Breeze, using the bigger stars to make the smaller stars stand out. Then used my nesties for the main piece and ribbon to tie it on - yes that's where I hid the pink (in the knot)!! Still not sure about the pink, but it works!
