This week's challenge is about 'STARS'...How convenient as today I hit my head on the cupboard above my desk and, boy, did I see
So I came home and decided to 'throw down' something whimsical..Below is what I came up with.  Hope you like it.

My first attempt at coloring with Spectrum Noirs (I followed Diane's advice and took the plunge and bought the Noirs...thanks Diane!..)
Supply list is quite short tonight as this was a "quickie"
White card stock 6.5" x 5 card base
Star patterned paper from my Recollection collections
Alphabet from a very old Americana stickers set
Embellishment (banana) free svg download from Beth Franks (on
Spectrum Noirs used:  CT2, CT4, PL2, PL5, True Black
Pop up foam dots
