The movie of the week at Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge is: What a fun movie! It's about a young man who wants to be a knight, but is a peasant and therefore not eligible for knighthood and tournaments. He works hard to "change his stars" like his father told him. The challenge for this movie is to use a star. I took the color green, like William's banquet tunic that was sewn by Roland, as my inspiration.
Last week I made an 18th Birthday card for a nephew and came across this star stamp set. I thought that this stamp from the set would be perfect for his Graduation this spring. Then, along came this challenge! This star has alot of good advice on it, but I had to add the heart stamped with my final advice. Whatever you do it has to be what you want.
I enjoyed planning my project and putting it together, but I'm not a great (not even good) photographer. I couldn't get color and clarity to work together. I decided to go for clarity in this post.

I used Certainly Celery, Old Olive and Always Artichoke card stock and ink for my green (the colors are darker in the photo). I also used brushed silver (like armour) embossed in my Big Shot and Brushed Gold (for the prizes) cardstock and the large heart punch. I used In the Stars (ret.) and Whimsical Words stamp sets. All from Stampin' Up!
Thanks for stopping to see...I love your comments, Grammie
