Super simple birthday card!

I am desperately trying to get ahead on birthday cards this month - I have been seriously slacking lately!  And as all of our family live in the UK I have to be SUPER organized to get them in the mail on time! This is a card for my brother-in-law whose birthday is at the end of this month. I used this month's card sketch from Artful Delight:

And here is the card I made:

I used My Mind's Eye decorative tape in 3 different colors for the background. I then stamped the sentiment using black ink and then quickly applied translucent embossing powder. I heat embossed this to make it stand out a little more clearly.

I punched out the stars using my Martha Stewart punch and 'popped' them up for a bit more depth to the card. I then finished it off with some grey baker's twine.

I'm off to get this in the post now! Hopefully, this one should get there on time!

Happy scrapping :-)
