Have a Blast

July is birthday month for our family.  I have 10 grandchildren and 4 of them have birthdays within 10 days of each other in July.  In fact two of them share a day.  Crazy.  So I have been busy trying to think up birthday cards for kids.  This card is for a boy turning 5 who is fascinated with outer space.  He is way advanced in his interests and asks me questions I can't answer.   When he was three he told me that Saturn was probably the only planet that had rings.  Anyway, I think he will like this card.  I just hope it is not too unrealistic for him!
The rocket is a stamp by 2 Cute Rubber Stamps.  I think I have only used it twice but thought of it when planning a card for this grandson.   It is cute.  Will have to pull it out more often.

The three stars are cut out of a strip that was part of a SU scrapbook kit.  I added Stickles to those and outlined each silver star on the DP with Sakura Clear Star pen. .   Oh, I also outlined the rocket to give it a little shine.  The sentiments are digital by Doodle Pantry - they go with the Bottle Rocket Ants.  Check it out Here
