Hello friends! I wanted to share with you a fun birthday card that I made following the latest sketch challenge for My Favorite Things.
For this card, I went with my favorite astronauts from the BB Space Explorer Stamp Set. I stamped my images onto some Neenah Classic Crest 110lb Solar White Card Stock with black ink. I then colored my images with Copic Sketch Markers (colors listed at the bottom). Once colored, I used the coordinating dies to diecut these images.

I followed this sketch (above) for my card layout. My Favorite Things has a new challenge sketch every Wednesday and it’s a lot of fun to play along.
I then worked on the galaxy background of my card. For this, I blended some distress inks (Broken China, Squeezed Lemonade, Picked Raspberry and Chipped Sapphire) onto another piece of Neenah Classic Crest 110lb Solar White Card Stock. Once blended, I spritzed this with a little bit of water and splattered some opaque white paint on top to give the impression of stars.
For my framed area, I used the Die-namics Gift Box Cover Up Die with a piece of white cardstock. I glued this to the front of my card, over top of my background. I then added my astronaut on top of this with some adhesive foam squares to give some added dimension. Lastly, I added my sentiment by heat embossing it onto some Black Licorice Prestige Card Stock with Super Fine Detail White Embossing Powder. I got my sentiment from the now discontinued MFT Out Of This World Stamp Set. I used one of the dies from the Die-namics Essentials Fishtail Strips to cut out my banner.
