Get Well Challenges

A nice relaxing Saturday today, gotta rest up for my Sunday bike ride!  A little housecleaning, a little yard work, and lots of World Cup Soccer on television.  Congrats Columbia, go Mexico--I'm cheering for the underdogs!

I've been slowly working on this card for the Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #190.  Here is the inspiration card.  So many different ways to go with this sketch.  But since I've been on a shaker card roll, I decided to stick with it---as this sketch just calls for a shaker card :)

Also, since I'm using my new Paper Smooches stamps and will enter into Paper Smooches Anything Goes Challenge as well.

I'm using my brand new Paper Smooches Stamps Space Cadet--just receive it this week!  It's super cute, but also need to purchase the die cuts (they were out of stock)!

I stamped up the space ship, colored it with Copic Markers.  I then used distress ink to add some color to the background. I cut the oval shape, and made the shaker elements with a star punch (which I just purchased) and glitter paper.  I've been having fun making my own shaker elements lately, they shake so nicely. I stamped the sentiment with Versamark and heat embossed it with white embossing powder.
