Already the middle of August and that means it's time
for a new challenge theme at the
The challenge theme is 
'You Are A Star'.

I started with a white card stock that I embossed with a star embossing folder.
I used Lawn Fawn Stitched Hillside Borders to give it a nice 'curvey'
design at the bottom.
 (these dies can be used for more then just hillsides).

Before adhering it down I tucked a piece of
polka dot designer paper under it using
I added a Tutti Designs Word Set Celebrate  to that,
which I cut in both white and pink,
stacking for a 'shadow effect'.

The 'STAR' of the show (pun intended) is
cut once from a pink card stock and once from a glitter paper.
I had some little star 'candis' in my stash and thought they
would be cute to add.

Here is a recap of all the products used.

Now pop on over to the Dies R Us challenge blog and see
all the fabulous inspiration waiting for you there
asdmy teammates have once again outdone themselves!
