Happy Birthday Matt

This is the second card that I made for my eldest son's 18th Birthday, this one is a little more simple than the first one.

The papers are from the Crafter's Companion Camden Town collection and I have inked the edges with distress ink.  The tags are a Lawn Fawn die, the stars are an X-cut die, the Happy Birthday Matt was cut using Britannia Dies and the 18 is a Die'namics die.  I have heat embossed the 18 and the stars with clear embossing powder to make them shine and stand out a little, the ribbon is from my stash.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Let's Craft and Create Challenge 85 - Let's Celebrate
