I'm seeing stars at the Paper Variety!!!

Hi everyone! Time for a new challenge at the Paper Variety...and it's all about stars! Incorporate a star or a whole bunch of stars onto your paper project, upload to the PV gallery...and you will be entered into a drawing for an incredible star studded prize from Technique Tuesday!!! :) :)
I used some beautiful Webster's "let's celebrate" pp for my card - which I will send to my nephew Timmy who left for Air Force training last month. {My brother reports that Timmy wants mail.} I used a cotton swab to apply embossing ink to the "family" part of the star. Then I sprinkled on the embossing powder, ran my cotton swab along the edges, and heat embossed. The star was pop dotted to the top of the card. I also added 3 MM star brads and some pretty red Offray ribbon.

This is Timmy, at a party in his honor, the day before he left for his Air Force training in Texas.

Hope you get the chance to play this week at the Paper Variety!
Please upload your project by next Tuesday, May 24, 2011, 12:00 noon, EST.
I know you've got a shining star just waiting to be scrapped. ;)

Thanks so much for coming by my blog!!
hugs, patti
