A Fireworks display for Fourth of July Holiday

Hello and welcome back Friends. I hope you will be able to join us at HMFMC this week. The theme is HOLIDAYS... and it can be any type of Holiday.  
 Here is my HOLIDAY take:

Same Card, Different Angle
I had the USA Fourth of July Holiday in mind - (since it is right around the corner).  I went with this crazy idea of creating my own fireworks display by cutting out these Creative Expressions, Sue Wilson Dandelion dies in Red, White and Blue CS and adding bling to the centers (to resemble the explosion lights). Turned out kinda funky, heh? Still really FUN to layer and put together. These fireworks are stacked over the Frantic Stamper Star Background (which is triple layered). and paired with the Spellbinder Stars  Circle.

Stamp: Stampabilities, House-Mouse Designs, "Glorious Feeling", #HMUR1033, featuring Muzzy from the year 2003.
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Copics, Glitter GEl Markers
Paper: Bazzill CS in Navy, Red and Heavy White CS
Accessories: Frantic Stamper Star Card panel die FRA-DIE-09412, Spellbinder Star Circle Die, Creative Expressions - Sue Wilson Finishing Touches Collection - Dandelions Clocks die
Frantic Stamper Precision Die - Star Card panel
There are lots of themed precision dies at Frantic Stamper Inc.,
