Shooting Star (Laurie Moore's "Rising Star" April Challenge Entry)

My friend, Laurie Moore has started a monthly challenge this year on Facebook.  Each month she features a craft item and those who would like to participate in the challenge purchase the item from her Artfire store.  You have a month to complete your project and you can create anything with that item that you like.  In April, the challenge was called "Rising Star".  The kit contained a paper mache' star, plastic crystal dangle and a wire crystal hanger. (Pictured below)

Here's what I created with the kit.  I chose to omit the crystal dangle and hanger and used an 8x8 canvas to create what I had envisioned in my mind.  The star is painted and covered in Tim Holtz Clear Rock Candy dry glitter.  I wish it would show in the photo, but it really sparkles.  I used some Blue Fern Chipboard, Cheery Lynn doily dies and various stencils along with surrounding the star with various flowers from Petaloo and Prima.  I hope you like my "Shooting Star" canvas.
