Simon Says Stamp and Show Some Stars

 This is a card for a friend that is turning 60, he lives out in the country so star gazing should be good.  I used stars for the Simon Says Stamp and show some Stars. 
 "party just because"   inside........  you still can!

                                          Happy Birthday....
  May you have a sunny day
 and a clear night,
so you can wish upon
60 stars in the sky!

Here is how I made this card. The base color of the card is gray,  I just have a few star stamps, the bigger stars are from a stampin'up stamp that has the word Hope below the star. I just stamped the image on textured border punch strips in the colors you see and cut the bottom word off and then glued them on the front. Took a black Memento marker around the edges of each square and around the edges of the card. The banner was stamped with dots and the party just because stamp, both $1 stamps from Michaels! The small stars are from a stamp with a background of the word inspire... love this stamp from Catslife Press, but I trimmed around so you could not read the words. I did not do anything fancy but do think it is a good guy card. Thanks for looking.  I discovered that I have few star stamps but way too many heart stamps!
