You know that excitement you get when you've made a card you love and just HAVE to share it with someone? Right? After I made today's card, I literally squealed because it came out just like I pictured it in my head. I rushed to show it to our daughter--coz, ya know hubby just doesn't "get" it--and was delighted when she squealed too! And then I said look how I painted the moon with Wink of Stella so it sparkles and she said......that's not the moon, Mama, that's Jupiter. Talk about a buzz kill, ha!
Alright, I admit the swirly paper (Going Places DSP stack) does look a bit like the Jupiter's big red spot but I prefer to think of it as the swirling mists of a full moon.....especially with all the Wink of Stella I painted on it! The background paper is also from the Going Places DSP stack and I used the Alphabet Rotary Stamp to create the sentiment (a favorite saying between DD and me). I added some Gold Thread looped behind the moon (yeah, I know the moon doesn't have rings!) just because I thought it looked very galactic.
I picked up the Hello Honey color from the DSP and used it on the inside with two images from the Going Global stamp set--love how the images coordinate with the Going Places DSP. Oh, and if you're curious the card measures 5" square. I don't often make square cards but this one seemed just the right size.
