pop up box card "21st Birthday "

I'm really into making pop up boxes , I've made several , some cut on my Silhouette Cameo  machine , like this one and other cut and scored by hand . They are very simple but give a fab 3d look that folds flat into an envelope.
The lady I work for asked if I could make a card for her neighbors son who is 21 next month , he is in the army but doesn't drink or have any hobbies , so I went for a star birthday box.
The basics are a silhouette America file. The star die is from Joanna Sheen . The papers are first edition , a selection of gold peel offs and gold stars complete the look. Hope they like it!

challenges entered :
Rubies rainbow : one for the boys 
word art Wednesday : anything goes  
Rhedd & Rosies : no flowers none floral

don't know about you but I'm fed up of this rain , definitely crafting weather.

This card has such a fabulous party feel to it, just perfect for someone who's turning 21. This design works both for a man or a woman, I like that about a card. Love the flourish with stars!
