I background for this card came about when I was playing with melted wax crayons - it looked like a night sky to me, so I splattered it with some white acrylic paint, and some silver paint.
I added the wee boy's age with a silver die cut
The rocket was a freebie image, compliments of Mr G**gle, and coloured using watercolour pencils. After colouring I trimmed it out and glued it to the background.
This panel was then mounted over silver paper, then onto the dark blue card base.
I decorated the inside with a strip I had trimmed from the background, and stamped the sentiment there in blue ink, and coloured it with a silver pen
