I was inspired by the rocket, the fun constellation pattern, and the splattered colors in the top right corner. I also loved the detailed background, bright blue, and black/white sentiment on Lisa Henke's inspiration card ;) I used Waltzingmouse Stamps "Half Pint Heroes" to make my little Rocket Man!
I made my background by embossing white cardstock with the Sizzix "Softly Falling" embossing folder from Stampin Up, then sponging Distress Inks in Spiced Marmalade, Squeezed Lemonade, Twisted Citron, then Salty Ocean. Over the top I used two stencils with white embossing paste, an arrow pattern from DCWV, and stars from Heidi Swapp.
The little rocket is paper pieced with a constellation paper from Echo Park, and added some white details with a chalk marker.
Such a fun challenge, and so excited to have a "boy" birthday card since I never have one ready when I need it!
