Star Student Card

Hi Everyone!  I want to show you the card I made for a few of my favorite challenges.  Here is my card.

 Here is a view of the card laying down.  If you can believe it, everything on this card was cut out of a white/cream cardstock (except the kraft paper).
 I cut the star letters from the Cricut Alphabet cartridge on my E2 machine at 1.25" out of white and colored them with Stampin Up Concord Crush marker.  The student font is from the Cursive 101 Cricut cartridge.  I used my gypsy to weld and stretch the word.  The small stars were punched with a star punch and I used Stampin Up Pear Pizzazz and Peach Parfait ink pads and a sponge dauber to ink them.  And I added a gem in the middle.  The sheer ribbon is 1.5".  I glued the Star letters under the ribbon and glued the student letters on top of the ribbon.  I LOVE this look!! 
 I also punched the larger stars from a punch using the white/cream cardstock .  I used the stampin up 3 colors to stamp the Peachy Keen Faces.  I chose the Snowmany Faces assortment set 3/4" size.  I also used the ink pads and sponge daubers to get the colors on the stars.
 Just look at the Peachy Keen face.  Isn't it ADORABLE!!!  The brown kraft paper is from my stash and I LOVE LOVE LOVE how it looks like corkboard.
 I am sooo proud of this card !  It looks 100 times better in person!
