Rocketting Birthday Wishes

It's funny. I hadn't really set out to make a card today. Baby was fussy so I was colouring while rocking - I'm getting good at the one-handed. I just love this Changito. It was part of a Changito image swap. Changito is coloured with Prismas while the rest of the image is coloured in markers. The cockpit is covered in Crystal Effects to give it the glass domed effect. I then wanted to take off the sheer white since outer space is usually darker and found some glimmer mist that I'd forgotten I had bought. SCORE! This is very shiny IRL. I don't think you can really tell in the picture.

The image and the sentiment had come on one quarter sheet of paper and needed some creative Nestie work but I like how it turned out. Unfortunately, as I was distressing the sentiment, I dropped my spot so I decided to just run with it.

I think this makes a fabulous birthday card for a child - bright and cheerful and can be used for almost any age.

Challenges this card meets:
A Spoonful of Sugar - Happy Birthday
Creative Card Crew - Happy Birthday
Meljen's Designs - For the Little Ones
Paper Sundaes - No People
Stamp with Fun - Animals

  4. As I was looking at the stars I was admiring what you'd done with the stars, and then came to comment and see that Crystal had also noticed it! Looks fabulous, you'll have to show me your technique for that. Overall, very fun card, love the glimmer which I can see kind of when I enlarge the photo. Glad you played along at Paper Sundaes :-)
