Make a Wish

Happy weekend everyone!  Hope it's going well so far.

I'm doing a really quick post.  I'm being a glutton for punishment and throwing my hat in the ring for Paper Crafts' Gallery Idol.  I told myself I wouldn't enter again... but alas, here I am.  The theme is kid/teen birthday.  What? Give your head a shake Glenda. Ugh... definitely the most difficult type of card for me to make.  Remind me again why I'm doing this?  I could mention some names that persuaded me to do this but I won't lay blame right now.  Hee, hee.  I love space and was definitely in space mode recently with Canadian Astronaut Chris Hadfield being so involved in social media while on the International Space Station.  The pictures and videos he posted were phenomenal.  Anyway, that made me think to do a space card.  For some reason, I couldn't get the colours to really come out on this photo so my apologies.  There is glitter mist on the background and Diamond Glaze on the helmet and the space ship glass.

Hope you like it!  Thanks so much for stopping by and have a fabulous day.
Take care,
