Back to School card for my Monsters

I recently saw a You Tube video of a Back to School card and it had fun stars and said Hooray on it and I wanted to CASE it, I changed up the colors to more girly tones and used embellishments from my stash.

 I started out with a Whisper White card mat sized 5 by 3 3/4, I stamped in Rich Razzleberry three times from the stamp set Watercolor Words.
 This is the inside were I stamped off the bottom to allow me to write some encouraging thought to my Monsters.
 I next stamped two Melon Mambo stars.
Again on the inside as well.
 Finally I stamped Wisteria Wonder two times as well.

You can stamp in a straight line, curve down, or curve up.  Its up to you.
 And again on the inside.
Scratch paper is a must in the crafting area, I use cheap printer/copier paper.
 I used my Hampton Art Stamp Perfect Tool to stamp the hooray three times in Versa Fine Black Onyx ink.

I also used my anti static powder tool first before stamping.

I then heat embossed in clear powder, right after melting the first coat I added a second right away while the powder was still wet.
Using a scrap piece of Whisper White I stamped the Labeler Alphabet in the same Versa Fine Black Onyx ink.
Finished Card

 I added some star sequins from Studio Calico with some tiny glue dots and then added a small clear gem where the hole of the sequin is.

See that awsome shine from the two coats of clear embossing powder, LOVE IT.
 This is not a traditional card its a 4 1/4 by 5 1/2 piece of Rich Razzleberry cardstock that on one side is the Melon Mambo mat that is 4 by 5 1/4, and the front mat taped to it.

On the back is the techniqually "inside of the card"
