Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge #21

So this card came to thought at 3am this morning. I was thinking this was what I wanted to do for the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge #21, but it wasn't until 3am that I really figured out how to do it. I was tempted to just get up right then and tackle the project, but I knew sleep was slightly more important then.

This is a card for a family member who recently had a birthday (yes, it's slightly late). But, hopefully its coolness factor will counter the lateness. Here's the sketch I followed:



And here's my take. I used Half Pint Heroes for this card, putting a little head that kinda looks like the recipient into the rocket ship. Then to make good use of that pocket I decided to have it take off! :) The sentiments are also from the same stamp set, although I had to get a little creative and use bits and pieces to make my "blast off!" one. Claire..."blast off" is missing! LOL!



And by the way, that grass is handmade...I might need to invest in some Martha Stewart fringe scissors! And my husband is already making a request for a card like this too...hee hee!

I hope you enjoyed your visit. And now to get this card in the mail!

It is hard to make a cute card for men and boys but your blasting off card is really cute. I can see why once you had the idea you couldn't wait to put it together.
