Seeing STARS at {Cupcake Inspirations}

Hello friends!
Hope you're all having a wonderful weekend!
I am enjoying some much needed time with family right now.

Stopping in today to share a new challenge with you over at
{Cupcake Inspirations}
Here's the awesome photo for the theme challenge this week:
There's just something about "stars" that I love on a design!  You don't have to use the same colors in the photo, just use some stars on your design this week!  Can't wait to see what you come up with!

We also have a great sponsor for the challenge this week as well:
(Click on the graphic above to be taken to the shop!)
They are providing the winner of this challenge with a prize of 3 images of choice!!
So be sure to play along for your chance to win!  They are really adorable images and they were kind enough to provide some images for our design team to play with too!

Here's what I've come up with:
So I've used this too cute to spook image from our sponsor called "Ghost with Pumpkin" for my card design.  I decided to go ahead and use the challenge photo for my base of inspiration as well.  I knew I had some fun black and white striped papers, so I went through my stash to find them and also ran into this fun Halloween style of ribbon that I thought would go perfectly with my design too.

I colored the image with my Copic markers and stamped some stars around him and then just cut him out with a stitched circle die.  I had a star punch, so I punched out some stars with my black glitter paper and popped them up over top of the circle and black A2 sized card base.  I've also included one of those punched stars in the center of my ribbon bow.

Always hard to photograph, but I've covered the ghost with some Wink of Stella for a shimmery looking ghost.  It seems to always look so cool in person of course!

Be sure to stop on over at the challenge blog to catch the rest of the "star-filled" inspiration by the design team!  We can't wait to see your starry creations! :)
Thanks so much for dropping in today!!  See you soon!
