Arty Girlz challenge #25 STARS

This week challenge over on Arty Girlz is STARS
we also have the very talented Emma as our Guest Designer

And there's more we also have a fantastic prize up for grabs which has been donated by Beverly from crop till you drop so pop on over to Arty Girlz and join in for a chance to win this fabby prize which is a card making kit. Julie and I were also lucky enough to be sent a kit each to play with and let me tell you there's loads and loads of papers embellies, Ribbons and also sorts in this kit. I have tons of papers and embellies left so no doubt you will all be seeing a lot more of this kit.
and probably more of me to as I HAVE NOW MOVED WOOHOO so once my craft stuff is unpacked i will be able to join in with some challenges and just make a mess as usual, LOL

so here's what i did with some of the kit

This was more of a play on the word Stars its a board canvas of Fred and Ginger they were true stars. The papers are from the kit i just love the music note paper so are the star brads. Fred and Ginger were from the net and cut out and mounted with 3D foam pads the twill ribbon with the musical notes on which is in the center if from the kit and i used my side kick from the words Shall we dance and the big metal question mark is from the kit as well just love that.

This card doesn't have any stars on it at all LOL i just liked it, it was in the instruction booklet that comes in the kit and its for the inside of a card but i liked it as an actual card so just thought i would throw this one in to the mix LOL everything is from the kit.

This set of ATC's were made using left over paper from the canvas and previous card and i stamped a flourish on the paper and the images are from a CD.

Everything for this card except the stamped "just for you" is from the kit including the card blanks which you get 10 of, I cut out 3 decreasing stars covered them in the paper and sanded them for a distressed look and also did that around the edges of the card. I stuck the stars to the card with 3d foam pads. I love this funky retro look paper but there is loads of different types of paper in the kit
