For the hop i'm featuring the Star of the Show stamp set!! This is an awesome background stamp set!!! For my card i inked up one of the star backgrounds with Perfect Medium and stamped it over a white card base.  Then i used a gold perfect pearl powder to color the middle stars, then i used copper around the outer edge of the stars.

Next i stamped the sentiment Its Your Day to Shine in grey ink. I also added a strip of a thin gold ribbon across the card just under the sentiment.
