Fly me to the moon.....

I seem to be posting all my cards with song titles lol, I thought of this one as soon as I saw this image. Mo has an uncanny ability to capture emotion in her creations. The plain and simple layout seems to be working for me at the moment and I say so long as I am creating then does it matter if they all have a similar look does it?

Its my first twisted easel card and it wasn't as easy as it should have been lol, I stuck the image to the card front on his side so had to unstick it and it nearly tore and ruined the whole thing, when you look at it now you would never know lol. I haven't put the sentiment on the star yet but I think you can guess what it will say.

Coloured with copics and of course some glossy accents, there is even an embossing folder on this one, really pushing the boat out.

Used snippets of cardstock and the red card never even made if as far as the snippet draw as I made this as soon as I finished the hero card from earlier in the week. As for recycling/reusing I cut the star for the hero card and then didn't need it and rather than just put it in the embellishment draw I used it on this card....check me out.

Ingredients
Image: Mo " Dream"
Papers: Echo Park "Little Boy" Digital
Cardstock: Red - Snippet from Stampin up and navy - from the snippet box but not sure where from originally.
Star: Leftover from Hero card.
