Grad Card

I've been saving this card for someone posting a graduation card challenge but so far haven't found one. But, Always Playing With Paper has a sketch that fits the design of the card.  Is that a little backward--make the card and then find a challenge it fits? Not the usual way we do it but in this case it works.
Here is my card
Our local school team is Stars with red/white/blue as school colors. To accommodate the large star I had to go with a 5x5 card. The stars are all die cuts from SU's Star Framelits. The stars are attached to a red strip of paper tucked between the white and red layers. The white layer is embossed with stars. The grad hat and sentiment are from Stampabilities. When you flip up the star, you find another die cut star and sentiment--also Stampabilities.

On the back of the card is another star that is only attached at the sides and bottom. I tucked some folded money into the top. 

You think this grad is going to be seeing stars?
Here is the challenge sketch.
Another inspiration for my card was from Karen Hasheck at Karen's Kreative Kards.  I totally cased this cute grad card.
