My item is a standard size card using kraft paper.  I love the Jubilee paper pack and thought it would be perfect for this Stamp of the Month.  I first embossed the starbursts with clear embossing powder and then sponged the ink to make the starbursts pop.  Then I stamped the words between the starbursts.  Below is my card. 
 
 
Here are the details a little closer.  Both the Celebrate and the rocket are pop-dotted for dimension.
