Polkadoodle Challenge 32 - Good Luck

Welcome to another Polkadoodle challenge! The challenge theme this week is:

Good Luck

I've made a star shaped card as a good luck at school card for a friend's little boy who will start school this September. I've used a template that I've had for ages and don't know where its come from along with papers (Star Cake) from Paper Boutique Vol 1. I've cut out extra stars and layered them with foam pads and then applied glossy accents over the top.

I've added a faux running stitch around the edges with a blue gel pen and then added some blue gems from my stash.

The banner is double layered and is a Sizzix die. I've coloured it with Promarkers and handwritten the sentiment. Ribbon is from my stash.

Good luck with the challenge and hope you can enter! Closing date is Sunday 21 August.
