Reach for the Stars!

The card I made today is for the FTL275 challenge 
over at Clean and Simple Stamping
The challenge was to make a card based on
the sketch below.

My first thought was to make a Valentine's card 
with hearts coming out of the envelope, but I've 
done that before and I wanted to do something 
different. While I was thinking about it my 
daughter suggested stars which I loved so I 
decided on a congratulations card and kept it 
simple with black, white and silver.
I'm thinking this would be good for a silver 
anniversary, a graduation, a promotion....
any major achievement in someone's life.

The envelope was made with the 1 3/4" circle 
punch. Punch out 4 circles, fold each one in half.
Position each piece so the folded edge is on the 
outside and forms a square. Use your preferred 
choice of adhesive to put together. I left the 
top open for the stars to 'float' out of.
