The Gang's All Here!

A friend sent out a request earlier this week for people to send a birthday card to her brother who lives in an assisted living home.  I of course couldn't turn down the opportunity to try to brighten someone's day by sending a card.  I asked her what his interests are, and she told me that he used to love to watch old westerns, such as Gunsmoke and Bonanza.  Thus, this card was born.  I only had one night to make it and get it in the mail, so it isn't anything too fancy.  I found the picture on the internet and came up with the sentiment.  The inside says, "to wish you a Happy Birthday."  I hope he is blessed by it!

I cut the stars using my George Cricut cartridge.  The 62 was cut with my Old West cartridge, and then layered on a circle punch and a scalloped circle punch.  I used a Martha Stewart border punch (the yellow border) and a EKSuccess border punch as well (the black border).

That is a great card, love the border you used on it, was that a punch or an svg file?
