Shoot for the moon!


Hi again, I think this little guy is so cute but his expression could be so sad so I wanted to give him a positive sentiment!

I used my embossing buddy on the lower part of the black panel but thought the remaining stray silver powder on the top part could be extra twinkles in the night sky lol!

I'm linking up to the challenge at AAA Cards where the theme is spectacular embossing.
In addition to the silver embossing, I stamped the moon in black then sprinkled on liquid platinum powder. I brushed some off to give the moon some texture.


At CASology the theme is moon.


The sentiment, moon and stars are a Hero Arts set that I bought a while ago and this is their first use so I'm linking up to Darnell's NBUS challenge for never before used schtuff! I'm afraid I still have lots more!

At Happy Little Stampers CAS challenge it's a colouring theme.
I coloured this crazy bird with prismacolor pencils and blended with a stump and zest it.


Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge is celebrating Stamptember with a stamp challenge and blog hop.

  4. I agree that his expression can be sad, or nervous... maybe he's worried he won't be able to fly to that moon! I love this adorable design!

  6. Today and yesterday's card are so darn cute! I love those birds and never get tired of seeing cards made with them. Your coloring is so pretty and I love how you did the moon. Brushing off some powder made it look so authentic.

  7. What a fun card, Cathy! I find he doesn't look as sad as he looks doubtful that he will reach the moon... Love it!
