Giving it a try-Paper Crafts Idol

For several years Paper Crafts has be holding a compatition based to the hit TV show American Idol. This year I have decided to throw my hat in the ring and give it a try-reason being the grand prize is a cruise-what fun to cruise with other paper crafters. So here is my card I am entering in the contest for the 1st round. The theme is congrats!
Here you can see that I decided to add some paint to my card and chipboard star. I used re-inker and pearl paint. For the card I used a stamp to add the dots to the card-aren't they shinny? And for the star I used a dry brush technique so that it would give the star some texture.
I also chose to layer some embellishments on the star. I used 2 buttons, a brad and then a tiny rhinestone.
Lastly I added some Martha Stewart glitter to some sticker letters and a sentiment that I typed on my typewritter using vintage ledger paper.

If you have time go by the gallery and check out all the great cards-tough competition!
