Crazy4Cocoa#35 - You're a Star!

Hello and welcome to the Crazy4Cocoa & Friends challenge #35. This week the challenge is to add some stars to your cards or creations. I added lots of stars to this card, and I used the SNSS Cocoa loves football digi image because the Superbowl is being played this weekend! To be fair, I'm using red, white & blue to represent both the Giants and Patriots. They're both good teams and each deserves to win, but I only watch the Superbowl to see the funny commercials, so I don't really care who wins :)
 I used the SNSS Hearts & Stars Scallop Border die for the vertical border, cutting one in red, one in white and one in blue, and then interchanging the tiny stars for interest. The 3 stars on the right were cut with the SNSS stars die set.
The background was embossed with a CB ef and the sentiment was computer generated. I'm sure you die-hard football fans remember that song, and you'll probably be singing it for a few days like me :)
Please use the keyword C4C35 when uploading your cards and have fun watching the Superbowl everyone!

Carol, boy would my son (actually my daughter too) love to get this card. I think I'm going to have to CASE this one for his birthday in June. Such creativity you have punching the stars in the border punch and alternating the colors. Cocoa is adorable with his perfectly colored football and your sentiment piece is spot on. The embossed background goes so well with the theme. Fabulous card for the football fan. I'm upset that they are showing some of the commercials already. For me that's a big part of it so they are spoiling the surprise. Have a great day.

What a timely card, Carol. Love it and your bg is super for this theme....looking like pigskin. I'll hear about the commercials later as I am mostly a college football fan and won't be watching the Super Bowl.
