Space Adventures

Welcome to another Tuesday Throwdown challenge. And this week we have a fun theme for you: Space Adventures. This is so perfect for any little boy and I think my young nephew will love the card I made for his upcoming birthday... provided he is still into spaceships and alien.  (And they call us fickle!)

Our sponsor for this Challenge #139 is My Grafico and they have generously provided the DT with some of the cutest images to use on our cards. I'm using images from the 3...2...1...Blast Off set. And it's not just for boys, there's also a little girl in a space suit. How cool is that?!

Take a look at my finished card project for this challenge:

The patterned papers are from Bo Bunny "Blast Off" 6x6 pad.

Since this is a boy-card, I did not feel pressured to dress it up. So, all I have is a label for the greeting and some blue twine. Because this card has it's own journey to make, I'm keeping it as flat as possible, thereby dispensing with my addiction to foam tape.

 I coloured him with SN markers and chucked some Crystal Stickles in the background... distant stars! 

On the inside I continued with a sentiment from the same WMS set and threw in that darling little alien.  

There you have it - a card to thrill any young man.

In the meantime, I'm taking my card to the following challenges: Here Come the Boys #48 "Photo Inspiration"; No Matter Which Challenges #7 "Anything Goes"; Pile It On #11 "Circle and / or Square"; Stampin' For the Weekend "Child's Play"; Crafty Ribbons #41 "One For the Boys"; Can You Digi It #31 "Male Birthday";  Little Miss Muffet #56 "Boys Only"; Delightful Challenges "Here's One For The Boys" and Ooh La La Creations "It's A Man Thing.

Now it's your turn. Show us your creative efforts and link it up with Tuesday Throwdown Challenge #139.  Remember, the theme is Space Adventures. But first, why not visit my fellow DTeamies and they'll get your creative juices bubbling in no time!  Kim SherrodCarol GillCeal PritchettDavi ReidJoyce LoftonJulie WellsNana Connie and Sally Dube
