Back to Stamping with Two Challenges!

I've been away from my stamping quarters too long! I did enjoy a quick get-away to Colorado Springs with my hubby though. Boy are those mountains beautiful!
I thought I'd use the PPA Theme Challenge here AND the Stamping 411 sketch here.
So I started with a base of Whisper White and added a rectangle of Real Red card stock. I stamped the triple star image from Starring You in Real Red classic ink on that Real Red card stock. I used a strip of Night of Navy from the Patterns Pack III Hostess set. Then I stamped the stars in Night of Navy ink on Whisper White. I colored one star with blender pens and Night of Navy ink and punched out a Real Red one with the Star punch and popped that up with a Stampin Dimensional. "Thank you" from Teeny Tiny wishes was stamped in Real Red, punched out with the Word Window punch and layered onto a Night of Navy piece punched with the Modern Label punch. Finally, a Silver brad was added for a little flair.
Here's my recipe:
Stamps: Starring You and Teeny Tiny Wishes
Papers: Whisper white, Night of Navy, Real Red, Patterns Pack III Hostess set(Night of Navy)
Inks: Night of Navy and Real Red
Accessories: Star punch, Word Window and Modern Label punches, blender pen, Stampin dimensionals
