It's A Celebration - I got Honorable Mention for Papertrey Contest

This is a card I had submitted to the PapertreyInk April Guest Star Designer contest. I used their It's a Celebration stamp set and all Papertrey papers on this card. I didn't win but I did make Honorable Mention! See it on Nicole's Blog !

I love these flags that include the rope they are strung on. I cut out and popped up every other flag along the line. I cut the stars with my nestabilities using white and Berry Sorbet card stock. I love the deep color of this paper. The designer papers are from the Pink Patterns collection.
You really need to try the Papertrey cardstock if you haven't already - it is a nice heavy weight so the cards stand right up and don't curl or bend.
Thanks for checking out my card today - I'd love to hear what you think of it!
Stamps: It's a Celebration: Papertrey
Paper: Berry Sorbet, White, Pink Patterns - all Papertrey Ink
Ink: Berry Sorbet, Sweet Blush, Pitch Black Adirondack
Accessories: nestability stars, dimensionals
