Paper Cutz Challenge # 15

Happy Friday! It's time for Paper Cutz Challenge # 15! This week's challenge is to make a card or other paper craft using stars. This on was pretty easy and gave me a chance to use these great Stacked Star Dazzles from Paper Wishes. My star was made with 3 dazzles in different sizes. I mounted them on cs, cut them out, and used pop dots between the layers. The sentiment came from the Phrases Dazzle pack and the pp is from Paper Wishes also. The design team has some awesome projects to inspire you, so be sure to check them out. Remember deadline to enter this week's challenge is 12 pm (est) Thursday, November 5.
