Card using Simon Says Stamp August Card Kit

august card kit - 1

Hello friends, today I have a quick and simple card using Simon Says Stamp August card kit. This card kit comes up with the Seeing Stars stamp set. This has several constellations made with stars and dots. Stamp sets like these are great for gender neutral / masculine cards which is kinda what I did today.
