Cards for Men - Challenge 13 - "Stars"

Good Morning Everyone, well what do you think of our awful weather not much Im sure, but Ive got something to cheer you up weve reached our 13th Challenge for Cards for Men and this time my fellow team member has chosen "Stars" as her theme and we are being sponsered this time by a very talented lady Tracy of "Stamping Boutique"
And she has kindly offered 5 digis of your choice for the prize and this is what she says about herself and her company:-

     I'm Tracey Malnofski, the artist and owner of The Stamping Boutique. My team and I are very happy to sponsor Cards for Men. My store has been open since September 2009.I am currently a stamp artist for UnityStampCo. and I've worked for InStyleStamps, Squigglefly, and TheDigiShack in the past. I'm a professional artist and an active member of the Artist' Guild in my community. I have quite a busy household with a husband, 3 teenagers, 5 mini-dachshunds and an Appaloosa mare. It's noisy, but I love them all. I'm truly blessed.
"The Stamping Boutique" is dedicated to quality products and original artwork. We not only provide wonderful digital images in our store, but also several lines of red rubber images. Our designers are chosen for their character and personality,as well as, their beautiful designs. We work hard to give you our very best. Thank you so much for having us as your sponsor this week."
And here is my card for this Challenge, Ive used this cute image of a Soldier and coloured him with my copic pens and then used my glitter pen on the stars and cut it out with a Rectangle Nestabilitie Die and mounted it onto a larger one for the mount. The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of blue pearlescent card and one of Donna's Bearlymine Design papers a blue background with stars on.  Ive then used some of the blue card to create two star shapes with a star Die and then ran them through a star embossing folder then arranged them on top of the first paper.
The mounted image was then positioned in the centre with my tag sentiment on a jaunty angle on the right hand side. To finish of Ive used several star gems at the top on both sides.
Now youve seen my card I do hope you will pop across to the Cards for Men Blogspot and see what the rest of the team have created for the challenge and hopefully you also will be inspired to take part in the challenge.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
