CTS#203 Birthday Blast Card

Hello, again. I'm happy to share that my mojo has returned. Each time it goes away, I'm sad. It is usually slow to return, and I end up making a few failed attempts before the mojo comes back.

So this next card was inspired, in equal parts, by a couple of current challenges, as well as the constellation paper included in the new "Dreamin' Big" collection from Close To My Heart.

Paper: Dreamin' Big, Hello Lovely, Peacock CS, Whisper CS, Black CS, White Daisy CS, Glacier CS (CTMH)
Stamp: Birthday Blast (retired) (CTMH)
Ink: VersaMark, Black (Memento)
Tools: Gold Embossing Powder, Heat Gun, Paper-Piercer, Micro-Tip Scissors, Glue Pen (CTMH), Cricut Design Space 
Other: Gold Shimmer Trim (CTMH), 3d Foam Tape (CTMH), Silver Stars (Jo-Ann Fabrics)

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

1) Case this Sketch CTS#203 
2) Seize the Birthday "Anthing Goes"
3) Heart 2 Heart "Silver and Gold"

The rocket and moon, stars and cloud images were created in Cricut Design Space. I signed up for Cricut Access. It's perfect when I don't have a certain image among my stamp sets.

Happy crafting!
