You're A Star

Here's another card I was commissioned to make.  This was for the same friend who commissioned Anya's Card but she wanted a card for her son this time.  As I have mentioned before, masculine cards tend to be more challenging for me and to add to the mix, she also asked if I could make the card look like a stage since her son likes the arts and is a performer.  This is what I came up with.

I used some left over silver paper and embossed it with the Woodgrain impression plate from PTI.  I cut out the my main sentiment with a nestabilies die and surrounded it with cut out stars from CTMH's Shining Star stamp set that were embossed with silver embossing powder.  The spotlights are stickers that I found at Michaels which I popped up using mounting foam.

She wanted an encouraging sentiment and I loved this one from PTI's Heartfelt Basics.  I added a couple more embossed stars to finish it off.  I also stamped a couple of stars on the outside of the envelope. 

My friend was very happy with my interpretation of her "stage" idea, as was I.  I always love a challenge!
