40th Birthday Card

It's my brother's birthday today, and I hope this card has arrived with him on time. 

It's based on this month's card sketch from Stick It Down, but I stretched it a bit to make a slightly larger card. A landmark birthday deserves a larger card than usual, and this one is 6x6 rather than 4x6.

I cut five 1" paper strips and matted them on embossed orange paper, cutting my stars from the same paper, plus a dark grey scrap. I inked all the edges, and mounted my stars on foam pads for a little dimension.
