My card swaps for my Luv2Stamp Meeting

Hello,
I have been a member of the Luv2Stamp group, a group of Stampin' Up! demonstrators, for over 11 years and one my favorite things we do when we meet is to swap!
WHAT IS A SWAP, YOU ASK?
We meet on a regular basis to share ideas and we come all together and create one card front multiple times and swap (trade) with everyone and you end up coming home with multiple ideas from everyone.  I think this is the largest one we've had in a while.  We have 50 swaps.
I can't wait to come home with 50 different ideas!
Here is my swap.
It's a version of a easel card, but I used the new Stars Framelits and the new stamp set, Bright and Beautiful.
I started with an 8-1/2" X 11" folded in half, at 4-1/4" and lay the largest Framelit so that one of the star points is laying on the edge of the fold.
 
Once you run it through the Big Shot you get the card like this:
 Then, you score across the 2 points of the front start as depicted in the picture below:
 Then, fold along the score line so it looks like this:
 Then, using the smallest and two sizes up and lay them on the Very Vanilla so it looks like this:
 You will get a shape that looks like this with a nice cut out.
And then I stamped it with some Real Red ink with the Bright and Beautiful stamp set.
Then, run a piece of Daffodil Delight with the largest Framelit and then emboss it with the Lucky Stars Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. This will be the front of the card.
I cut out the smallest star in Real Red and stamped with the Silver Encore Pad with the Shine stamp from the Bright and Beautiful stamp
Then, I layered the pieces to make the front like this: 
 Adhere the Daffodil Delight Star to the Real Red card like this, only on one part of the scored front
Here it is all standing up.
 Here's another version using Wisteria Wonder, Soft Sky, Sahara Sand, and a Real Red center.
What do you think?
Thank you for checking in!
