Shaker Birthday Card for Joyful Stars Bllog Hop

Welcome back to the July Joyful Stars Blog Hop!  We are a group of Close to My Heart consultants who share something each month on the 9th and at 9PM EST.  If you are coming from Helen's blog you are on the right track. (The complete lineup is also on Joyce's blog in case you get lost.)  Have fun being inspired!

The frame on my card was cut with the Artistry cartridge.  There is a foam sandwich (also cut with the Cricut) between the layers with an acetate window so I could put in some gold foil stars.  (from the May Happy Times paper special).
