Happy 40th Birthday Card

Hello and Happy Valentine's Day! My hubby and sweetheart is turning 40 today! I wanted this birthday to be memorable and not just because it's a milestone birthday but because it was filled with things he enjoys. He likes Captain America, so I did a theme for his birthday with this iconic Marvel hero. I made this Happy 40th Birthday Card with basic white, blue, and red card stock. I embossed the blue panel and made the shield with circle punches and circles cut with the Cricut machine. I used the Cricut to cut the 40 and shadow layered the numbers. Stamped Happy Birthday with royal blue ink and added a strip of red glitter stars by Recollections for some sparkle. It's a simple layout and one that is versatile for many occasions.

This Happy 40th Birthday Card is entered into the following challenges:
I also made him a cake. When I decorated it I had a migraine, so it's not my best work. I'm thinking he will be impressed that I didn't just go to the store and buy something. It was made with love and in the end that's all that matters.
