DOstamperSTARS Challenge: An American in Paris & Spinning Star

I love this week's DOstampSTARS Challenge, as it's a Musical Mania one!  And I love musicals.  Get a bowl of popcorn and your favorite soda.  Then curl up on the couch with a warm and fuzzy blanket.  There is no better way to spend a Sunday afternoon.  Especially if its raining.  Like it's been doing here in MN the past few days.  But I digress...

Today's challenge is An American in Paris.  Any movie Gene Kelly is in and I know I'm gonna love it!  Watch Gene Kelly on YouTube:  It should put you in the mood for today's challenge.  Or at the very least, it should put a smile on your face :)

I love the way this turned out.  But I'm afraid to say...I used punches that are retired.  But if you have any small and large star punches, this technqiue will work.  last year.  I just had to share anyways.

Now on to the cool part...the STAR SPINS!  Yes, it really does!
