Penny Black Saturday Challenge - Starburst

This week at the Penny Black Saturday Challenge, our theme is:

'Starburst'
We'd like to see stars on your projects

We are sponsored for this challenge by


And the prize is 4 rolls or ribbon of the winner's choice!

I had originally planned to use an image with stars on, but got distracted by the lovely new 'Hello Friend' stamp set I won on the Penny Black Inc & Flickr group, that arrived earlier this week. So, I used paper covered in stars (from the 'Boo to You!' collection by My Mind's Eye), and lots of stars cut using my Nesties instead. I coloured the image using watercolour pencils, then added Glossy Accents to his car. The sentiment is a stamp from the 'Anytime Messages' set by Hero Arts.



I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:
For more inspiration from my lovely DT buddies, please visit the Penny Black Saturday Challenge.
