Star inchie

I haven't made an inchie or played with my punches in a while, so I thought I would whip up a quick inchie for the lottery before the year ran out.
 The basic star shape is from a Martha Stewart corner punch my buddy Diane gave me - by sticking it back in upside down, I was able to complete the shape.  the background is black glitter paper, and the silver is paint.  I'm not that thrilled with the silver middle to the star, but the heat is on; I had to submit the inchie photo before the day is out. more glitter with by redundant, I think.  Maybe I will glue some crystals in the middle?

LATER:
Crystals didn't look right to me, but I did have an extra pearl (real freshwater pearl).  I think it looks nice.  It will be considerably harder to mail, though.  If it had a bezel, it could be jewelry!

Challenges:
Fabulous Friday - something new (first time I ever glued a pearl to a paper project!)
Fashionista Friday - scraps (everything in this project is a leftover)
Shelly's images - black, silver, gold, and bling
Creative Card Crew - Christmas lights
Sparkles Forum - anything but a card
Gingersnap Creations - Starry Night

Even though I like pearls a lot, I think the silver is rather nice.
