The Paper Shelter Challenge #172 Stars or Hearts

It's time for another fabulous challenge over at The Paper Shelter Challenge blog and this week we would like to see Stars or Hearts on your card or project. I used one of the new digis that has been recently released and I absolutely love this one! Veronica drew this one after watching a World of Warcraft trailer for the new expansion pack that is coming out soon and as a WoW player, I just had to use this one.

I don't have an orc character, as I tend to play my Alliance warlock or mage rather than Horde (for those of you who don't know what I'm talking about Alliance are the "goodies" and the Horde are the "baddies"). It's a bit of a geek game, but lots of fun and highly addictive! LOL

Anyway here's my card. I also used the background paper for this one, added some more grass and some silver stars to it. I just could not think of a suitable sentiment, but then found this one and thought it went really well with this image. I fussy cut the whole image out, which is why the tiny pieces like the flies and the flames are missing. It took a while, but I love the effect against the dark background.
