Ombre Starburst

Yesterday I showed you one of the cards we did at my techniques class this I have another take on the Starburst Technique.  Inspired by a design on Pinterest, this one is very much out of my comfort zone...

Thank you card featuring the Starburst technique and the Ombre technique with sentiment from One in a Million.
Very CAS and graphic, no?  Not my usual style, but it was fun to try something different.  To get the ombre effect I used the following colours, from lightest to darkest:  Soft Sky, Pool Party, Coastal Cabana, Bermuda Bay and Island Indigo.  To create  the starburst I cut my strips 1-3/4" wide and 5-1/2" long and then cut each strip diagonally from corner to corner.  I left tiny white borders showing between each strip, partly because I liked the look of it and partly to make  the five strips fit properly (sometimes necessity really IS the mother of invention!).  I used Island Indigo Chevron Ribbon and Bermuda Bay Candy Dots to embellish this otherwise very plain design.  The sentiment is stamped in Basic Gray and comes from the One in a Million stamp set.  The gals at my class liked this card and I have to say so do I.  Sometimes stepping out of your usual style is fun and inspires different, but fabulous things!  Give it a try...I dare you!!
