Crafty Sentiments Team B - No Patterned Paper Challenge

NO patterned paper?!?!  I thought not being able to use it was going to make me crazy, but to the contrary, I had a blast creating this card!

Two of the elements in this card might be familiar if you are a regular visitor to my blog.  I knew right away I would use a cut out, so I pulled out my Verve stars die again (so cute!).  Did you notice the same little Crafty Sentiments guy I used last time, called Day Dreaming?  He's a little blonder today.  One of the star die cuts is glued on his shirt, with white embossing powder is used for the word, "star".  I went through my stash of stamps and pieced together words for the sentiment, doodling around each of the boxes.  The window uses a Lil' Inkers stitched die and I created the ledge myself with kraft paper and my Copics!  Using a craft knife to cut around his elbows made it so he could lean on the ledge and built in dimension.  I can't believe how 3D it looks (more in the picture that IRL).  I added some clear sequins for some shimmer and used an embossing folder on the paper below the window.
