Earthling Greetings Birthday Happy

Hello.  Welcome.  When everywhere there is spring sometimes it's nice to be find something a bit different.  Nordsalten Hobbyklubb want to see some out of this world action this month so I went with a bright, other worldy birthday card.  April is the month for my family, with birthdays popping up all over, so this will be perfect for one of the little people.

I sponged Night Sky chalk onto a blue card base and added some white and orange splats.  My planetoid was cut using a Sizzix circle die and coloured with many colours of distress ink and acylic paint.  I used a black pen to add the circles and a faux stitched edge.  The 'alien' is from Panduro's Rascals set.  I coloured with bright distress inks and fussy cut.  Was going to give her one huge eye, but it was a bit scary, so went with the conventional two.  

Thanks for dropping by.  Hugz
