PTI 6th Anniversary: DT Inspiration {Jessica}

Papertrey Ink is going to be having a bunch of challenges over the next few days to celebrate their 6th anniversary.  I've been a fan of PTI for years, so I decided to make some cards for their first challenge, which was to us one of the DT member's cards as inspiration.  My card uses Jessica Witty's card as inspiration.  I wanted to copy it exactly...down to the very last detail...because I love it so much, but I resisted the urge.  I still used the same color scheme, the same layout, and clear embossing like Jessica did on her card.  I like my card okay, but I still kind of wish I would have just copied her card exactly. :)
One thing I do like about the card is that I made a popped up star out of PTI's Seeing Stars dies.  You can't tell so much in the picture (I should have taken it at a different angle), but the star is 3D.  I know there are dies that do this for you, but the other night when I was looking at one (debating whether or not I should add it to my wish list) I realized I could make my regular star die have the same effect by just scoring it down the center of each point.  Love to save myself some money. :)
