Space Adventurer

Well this is a card that my son loves. The image is one that he chose from Squiggle Stamps for his friends birthday card, only mummy has to find out how old he is going to be before she puts on a sentiment and number.
The two stamps I bought in a secondhand/antique shop which also has wee baggies of stamps and other trinkets, these spacy stamps were perfect to go with the image, so they came home with me.
I have embossed the dark pearlescent brown card and also the gold metallic card and have added a wee gold/orange ribbon to add a little more texture, the ribbon came with one of my recent birthday pressies,
The wee satellite is made from headpins, tibetan silver beads and goldstone, a wee bit of tigerseye and another agate (not sure which one). Then I fixed them together with a brad.
I have as is my norm coloured with promarkers and have hi-lighted with a white pen and edged here and there with my colourbox chalkeyes.
I am entering this card into :-
CES Challenge 28 - Inspired by a song
MAWTT ch 91 - Precious Metals (tibetan silver)
Southern Girls - Add an Animal
Thanks for looking
Hugs Heidi xx
PS. Sorry forgot to say which song. It's either 'major tom' which gets my vote or 'star trekking across the universe, only going forwards cos we can't find reverse' such a fun song xx
