To the Moon and Back Again

I made this card for DS. I read to him "Guess How Much I Love You" by Sam McBratney and he was totally taken by the quote "I'll love you to the moon and back again." If you haven't read the book, you simple must. I even gave it to DH with a red canvas cover one Valentine's Day. If you want a wonderful I love you book - this is the best. Much better than the Robert Munsch one, "I'll Love You Forever".

The card is very simple with a Pumpkin Pie base. DP is Bo Bunny I believe. I knew what I wanted to do with it the second I saw it. The image is SU's Pun Fun and distressed with Pumpkin Pie around the edges. No embellishments or even Nesties in sight. I used my CM circle cutter for the image panel.

On the inside, which I forgot to photograph, I printed "I love you to the moon and back again." on So Saffron cardstock and ran it though my Star Nestabilities in keeping with the theme. So cute!
