Happy Birthday Human

Good Evening Blog World!  I know I haven't posted since March - life has been complicated to say the least.  I have been creating but not sharing.  I made a card today that inspired me too share.

I made this card for my son's brother who turned eleven.  I designed it n my Gypsy since I used three different cartridges.  The alien is from Boys Will Be Boys, cut at 3.75" (he's on foam tape and I used googly eyes instead of the pieces that the Cricut cut out); the planet and moon were cut from Space party at 2.06", and the postage stamp card was cut from Birthday Bash at 5".  I used a stamp from Technique Tuesday's Monster Ink stamp set and heat embossed it with Martha Stewart white embossing powder.  The patterned paper is from Fancy Pants', To the Moon 6X6 paper pad.  I used a mixture of Stampin Up and Recollections Card stock to cut out the images.  I chalked the planet and the moon to give it more dimension and I also put diamond stickles on them as well.  I used my white gel pen to outline the edge of the card base to finish the card off.

I really liked the way this card turned out.  I am entering it in Celebrate The Occasion's, Anything Goes Challenge.

Thanks so much for looking!  I really appreciate those who check in when I do post.
