Brother's birthday card

Well, I was really lazy here.  I totally let the paper do the work here, and didn't do much at all, other than coordinate colors!  LOL!!  So, this is for my oldest brother, and it may not seem much like a birthday card, but he was in the Navy for 25 years and when I think of him, I think of a patriotic theme.  Is that too weird??  So, the stars are all from Mickey and Friends, the "happy" is from Just Because Cards, and the "B-day" was welded from Gypsy Font.  Have I mentioned how easy welding is in the Gypsy??  WOW!!!!  So super simple. 

Tha large star is cut at 4.8" x 5.9", and the star border at 2.4"H x 4.5"L.  The paper is from Michael's, and they have lots of cute new patriotic themed double sided prints like this, which you will probably see more of in the coming weeks.  ; )     The sentiment is an SU stamp from the birthday sayings set, and I finished off the stars with marker for faux stitching and the CB swiss dots folder.  Thanks for visiting today!
