Simple starry wishes

Another guy light weight card for my mum in law and ex pat friends in Tenerife. This time white base card and again a paper matt , this time in navy blue and I also cut the britania 'happy birthday ' sentiment from the same paper. I used . 

I took a piece of white card again slightly smaller than my navy matt and used memory box starlit breeze die to cut vertically up one side so if gave a fancy border pattern to the card. I could have just added a piece of red mirri card beneath this panel but trying to keep the weight of the card down I cut the die again in red mirri card and inlaid the stars and dots. I had also cut the happy birthday into this card and inlaid the navy cut so the card remained as one layer , and as the centre of the matt had been removed so as to keep the card light weight it becomes virtually a one layer card.

Very clean and simple but perfect for a guy and airmail post too.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:-

Creatalicious - red ,white and blue / anything goes

less is more - colours of your country's flag
