Astronaut Card

This is the first card I have made using LOTV's Astronaut and isn't he cute?   I've coloured him with Promarkers (for a wee change) and Glossy Accents on the helmets and boots.

My children love making things (whoever could they get this from?!) and I could really imagine them making a rocket out of cardboard boxes like the boy in the image.  And the teddy and rabbit just adds another touch of cuteness!

The papers are a mix from stash and I think the stripy one was a Summer Driggs download.  I've embossed the stripy paper for a bit more texture and, as I wasn't posting the card, I added a button with a rafia bow underneath, which added so many more millimeters than I would have thought!!  And I found the sentiment wooden stamp in my drawer that I had forgotten about (naughty!) - I love the loopy font on it.

I would like to enter the following challenges:
Bunny Zoe's Crafts - Celebrations
Cupcake Crafts - Boys and their Toys
The Crazy Challenge - Anything Goes
