Fly Me to the Moon

It's time for another challenge at 613 Avenue CreateThis month, the optional twist is 

Up In The Sky 

so we'd like to see the Sun, the Moon, Stars, Sleighs, Angels, Clouds, etc.!   But it's only optional and we do love to see your projects!


I've gone with a rocket ship blasting off for the moon - it was actually a special request for an astrophysicist from his wife for his birthday but it could easily work for an anniversary or other significant celebration because I've avoided the Happy Birthday sentiment!

I have a stamp of a rocket in an old WMS set (Lil' Heroes) but the rocket image was too juvenile for him, though I did use sentiment.  Plus, she really wanted an interactive card so I really needed to go the die route - which I don't have so I needed to hit the Silhouette Store and see what they had available and knock one up digitally.

Here's a closeup of my little rocket.  Some of the pieces were tiny - the whole rocket is less than 2" long!  Anyway I managed to put them all together without losing any pieces and with a coat or two (or three) of glossy accents it was ready for blast off!

And here's a short video of the rocket in motion - flying between the earth and the moon!

I'm thrilled you stopped by my little corner of blogland and hope you go away a little inspired!  If you leave a comment, I’ll know you were here and how to find you so I can see what you've been up to!!!
