Let The Fireworks Begin

I spent the afternoon playing with the Ken Oliver Color Bursts.
Those things are seriously addicting! 
This piece in particular made me think of fireworks and the pops and 
bang sounds they make which is the theme for the current challenge at

I didn't want to cover it up with anything so 
I just added a die cut sentiment and a few glittery sequins.
Those color bursts are really simple to use and extremely fun!!
