Everybody is a Star, again & again -- Pilin' On the Childish Recycling

The theme this month at Pile It On is Recycle and/or For a Child. The only real rule is to be inspired by more than one papercrafting challenge. We're sponsored by MelonHeadz Illustrating, and I used their Stars Clip Art set to make this Card-in-a-Box.

The card design is based on on Keren Howell's Tuxedo Box Card tutorial, but I made mine smaller at 4 x 5.5 inches. I made the sentiment using the fonts Midnight Constellations and Willow by Kingthings. The images were colored with Copic markers.

I looked up the sentiment "Everybody is a Star in Someone's sky" and discovered this wonderful video from 1973:
