ARTY GIRLZ #25 Stars

The challenge set this week over at Arty Girlz is 'Stars'. I usually try to do as many of the challenges as i can, but sometimes time runs out on me! I wanted this one to be different to my normal type of card,so i designed an acetate card!
I used a HOTP Template called 'Spring Things' to draw my star shapes,then cut them out with a craft knife. I wanted the card to look good from all angles, so i needed to cut six stars in total. The papers are Basic Grey and K&Co, i love the look of the bright pink with the black and grey tones of the 'Black Tie' collection. I am hoping to get some more of this paper as i don't have very much left, and it is one of my all time favourites!
I have also used some Doodlebug rub-ons and some Papermania adhesive stones to complete my design. Below is a picture of the inside of my cardIf anyone has any tips on how to stop the acetate from being so static, they would be much appreciated!! Everything seems to stick to this stuff!!! I kept on trying to wipe the dust off and it just got worse! grrr!! I think i would like to try some more of these, i'm quite pleased with how this looks :) Thanks for popping in today, enjoy the rest of your weekend :)
