On a Mission

One of my (many) missions lately, has been to finish up unfinished projects. I have several stamped images in need of colouring and some cards that have been abandoned because I couldn't get them to look just right. Well, my challenge to myself is to finish them all off!

This image had been stamped and coloured for months. This weekend, my children have a birthday party to attend for a little boy who is really 'into' space. Well, I dusted this image off and decided to make something of it!

I wanted to make a card other than a standard 5 1/2 by 4 1/4, but didn't have a lot of time to look up the measurements for a specialty card. So, I decided to go with a card that opens in the center.

The papers are all from my scrap bin and the stamp is an SU! set called Pun Fun. I used a small star punch and some pop dots to adhere them around the space ship. The stars were also coloured with a glitter pen to make them shimmer. The number six was cut using a die cut and my cuttlebug. A bit of orange ribbon, et voila! I was finished. I am happy with the result and hope that this little guy's mother sees and rescues this card before it ends up in the trash with the wrapping paper! Eeeek!

Thanks for stopping by today!
