Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge -- All Boy -- Take Two

 I have another card to share that I made using the current


I was really drawn to the rocket in the middle of the photo
and wanted to make a card with a rocket on it....
but I didn't have any in my stash.
Well, here was an opportunity to get creative with my dies!


I started by layering some Heidi Swapp patterned paper as my background
over some white cardstock.
I diecut the largest scalloped circle from Circles 'n Scallops Confetti Cuts
from white cardstock and layered it over top.
I diecut my rocket using the triangle from Branch Out Confetti Cuts, which I cut in half.
The top half became the top of the rocket, and the bottom half went to the bottom.
I trimmed another piece of Heidi Swapp patterned paper into a rectangle for the body of the rocket
(onto which I blended some classic kraft ink) and added the tiny strips of red for detail.
I finished it off with an October Afternoon badge.


I stamped the sentiment (from My World) in versamark and heat embossed it in red.
I diecut thee ënd  of the strip of kraft cardstock with the end of the smallest tag from Tag Me Confetti Cuts.

Remember, there's still time to play along with this
 Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge.

Thanks for looking!

Leigh *waving wildly* I'm having Sunday night, back-to-work blahs, so the best remedy for lifting my spirits is a stroll through your blog to catch up (my apologies for being sooooo tardy!). I'm starting here, strolling in reverse...Your rocket card is totally out of this world..brilliant transformation of your dies! The constellation paper is super cool...
