I see the stars...


WooHoo!  I got mail today.  I received two new stamp sets from Our Daily Bread.  I won a $25.00 gift certificate from their store and had such a tough time deciding what sets I wanted most.  I finally decided on the sets How Sweet the Sound and How Great Thou Art.  The card below was made using a stamp from the How Great Thou Art.  Does this make you start singing?  It sure does me. I used an old Sizzix die to cut the star and then made a shaker box.  Lots of fun silver sparkle on this card.
Below is the inside of the card.  I used the star on the inside.  I'm wishing I would have put a star brad in the center or the star.  I'm going to try and pull it off and see if I can do that.  I think it needs a little silver on the inside. 
I would like to submit this card into these challenges:
Fab 'n' Funky - Tag on it
WordArt Wednesday - Uplifting
Really Reasonable Ribbon - Red, White, and Blue
Simply Create Too - Favorite Color Combo
