You're a Super Star - PTI Blog Hop

Happy Friday!

It is time for the PaperTrey Ink Blog Hop. It is one of my favorites each month and I try to always participate.

Last month's blog hop was featuring all white designs.  This month, the challenge is to use a black background. 

I used an embossing folder from Stampin' Up for the background to give the black some texture and then I just dug into my PaperTrey Ink dies to start building my card.  Adding the star pin was an afterthought and I really do like it!

You have all of today to play along.  Be sure to submit a card here and you could win a prize!  Enjoy the hop today and hopefully you will enter one of your lovely cards too.

I'll be back tomorrow with a new digi layout and I hope to see you then.

The red gingham tag is so striking against the black background. I really like the way you used the sentiment and star die cut as your focal point too!
