2 Sisters Challenge ~ Boys And Their Toys

 This week's challenge at 2 Sisters is Boys And Their Toys.  The image I used is from Bugaboo Stamps and is called Astronaut 1.  The base of my card is black.  I cut a piece of blue card stock just a little smaller than the card. I stamped stars all over the blue card stock and then inked the edges using a black ink pad and grey chalk. I colored the image using crayola and prisma colored pencils. I inked the edges with black ink and grey chalk.  Then I backed the image on black card stock. I punched stars out of mustard yellow cardstock and added yellow shimmer chalk. (you can't really see it in the photo but the stars shimmer).
  I finished the inside by stamping stars onto another piece of blue card stock.  I finished off each of the sentiments and the blank piece in the same way I did the image on the front.  I added two stars finished in the same way I finished the ones on the front of the card. 



I typed up the sentiment on my computer.  The complete sentiment reads... "One small step for man.....one giant leap for the BIRTHDAY BOY!" 

I am entering my card into the following challenges:


Paper Cutz: Wish Upon A Star

Top Tip Tuesday: Masculine Card

The Paper Shelter: Die Cuts & Punches
