Wish Upon a Star

This week's CAS challenge was to use one button on your card. I knew I wanted to layer a button on top of the clear star, so once I chose the button color, the rest of the card was easy. I pulled out some of my old stash for this one--Blue Bayou cardstock and dp. I also used a much-loved but underused set--Define Your Life. I think this will make a great masculine birthday card.

Stamps: Define Your Life (SU)
Paper: Blue Bayou, Not Quite Navy, Blue Bayou dp
Ink: Not Quite Navy
Accessories: paper piercer, corner rounder punch, Heidi Swapp ghost star, button (Oriental Trading Co.)
