Blast off!

We were invited to a birthday party at a friend's, whose son just turned 4. I wanted to make a card for him, but didn't have time to make something with my Little Trucks set. I remembered my felt shapes that bailed me out last time, and made this card with the rocket ship. I used more paper from my Recess pack, because I loved the dark turquoise-y blue, and the swirly pattern just make a wonderful space background. I added some felt stars and jazzed the whole thing up with some yellow and orange stickles on the flame. It turned out really cute, I thought, and came together really quickly. I was a bit aghast that there was no stamping involved whatsoever, so I stamped "brightest birthday wishes" inside and embossed in gold. I did ink the edges of the patterned paper, so ink did touch the card front. And I embellished the rocket with some pen dots (don't the "rivets" make it look just like a real rocket! lol). For how quickly this card pulled together, I really liked it and it was a hard one to give away, despite the high orange quotient.

Thanks for stopping by!
