You're My Shining Star

I'm a mother and a grandmother.  And, like most, are very protective and supportive of my family.  Recently, my son landed a very prestigious job at a bank.  He is a computer genius and is now Assistant Vice-President of Data Warehouse Developer.  Of course I had to recognize that achievement and did so with a congratulations card.

I love this paper that is bright but adaptable to so many designs.  It's a new Designer Series Paper for Stampin' Up! called Bohemian.  The colors and geometric designs are so modern.  I thought it was perfect for my masculine project.  

The Stars were cut from framelits that match stamps in a set called Be The Star.  I think it looks cool with the different sizes and colors.  I used a gold matte metallic button and twine to anchor the center stack of stars.  I tucked a sentiment flag under the stack.  The Delightful Dijon paper was a die that looks like a photo frame.  

So my dear son, you are my shining star!
