CAS birthday card

I am afraid the cold has come back.  Bummer I was well for just a few days then the sore throat and runny nose knocked at my door again.  I didn't even get to craft as much during those few days!

I am sharing a very simple birthday card today.  Even though it should not have taken a lot of time to make it, I did spend quite some time to plan the layout and colors.  It turned out a great masculine birthday card.  I am thinking that I'd like to shake things up a bit to turn it into a feminine one:

I first added the gray panel to the left of a top-folding card, then stamped the background in a pale blue.  The words are die cut from two different alphabet set - Happy from Lawn Fawn and Birthday from Memory Box.  Finally I die cut some bright stars to finish it off.

My card is linking up to the following challenges:
Stampin for weekend - birthday
Polka Doodle - Anything Goes (for the boys)
Addicted to Stamps & More - CAS
