Congrats Grad

I made this card for my niece who is graduating from high school.  I started with the stars and then went from there.  I punched a piece of Stampin Up Not Quite Navy with a star border punch from Creative Memories but it's a great substitute for the Confetti Star Punch.  I then punched the stars again from non shed silver glitter paper. I put tape on the back of the strip and placed the stars into the holes.  I used left over DSP strips from this Christmas Card project. I chose a Cherry Cobbler card to go with the strips from the Season of Style stack.  I adhered the wider DSP strip first then placed the narrower strips perpendicular to it.  I alternated narrow and skinny strips.  Then I adhered the NQN star strip over the wide one and shifted it over to the right.  The greeting is from the Sprinkled Expressions stamp set and done in Not Quite Navy.  I cut the right hand side in a banner and adhered it to the card above the star strip.  I then die cut stars with the SU Sizzix Stars #2 die, smaller in the same silver glitter and large in NQN card stock. Layered them and adhered the accent in the top left hand corner with Zots.  I'm happy with the outcome.

I'm submitting this card to the following challenge(s):
