Well hopefully Mother Nature will end the winter like a lion and bring in Spring with a lamb.
I used Moonwalk Billy for my card today, isn't he just adorable? I know this little guy will be getting a lot of use here in my house, having 6 grandsons and 4 of them 12 years and under. Billy will be making a lot of little birthday boys smile.
For my layout I used an older sketch from Pixie Cottage #53, I colored Billy with Copic and then used the Flag from the Blast Off accessories and cut it out to add to Billy so he could placed it on the moon. Ok I am going to show my age here, but when I was making this card I kept thinking about the first moon landing of the apollo 11 mission in 1969! Neil Armstrong being the first man to set foot on the moon with his flag. The Happy Birthday is also from the accessory set as well. I filled the letters in with Glitter gel pens
If you look close up you can see I used Crystal Effects for his face mask to give it the glass effect, sponged Sky Blue ink around to give the sky feeling and of course add my own chip board stars I covered with some scraps, SU Certainly Celery twill ribbon and little candy dots from Michael's.
I did finish the inside of the card but must not of taken a picture, the inside is completed with the same papers and stars and the Blast Off sentiment from the accessory set!!
This set is just a must have, there are so many different kinds of themes you could use it for, birthdays, thinking of you, get well and would even make a darling Congrats card. "You did it" theme.
Our challenge team has a new challenge for you today too, and it fits in perfectly with Billy Blast Off the theme being
Come Fly with Me
