Total Eclipse of the Heart

Hello Everyone,

Remember that song by Bonnie Tyler back in 1983; Or am I aging myself? Anyway, for today I will be playing along with CAS(E) this Sketch. I couldn't get this sketch out of my mind. The card came instantly but needed to find the time to create it... So, here I am, ready to share it with you. Here is my card for today, enjoy!

The moon is an Altenew set called 'To the Moon'. 
The paper that it is stamped on is has a metallic sheen.
How the picture was shot looks amazingly real!!

The stars in the background were done with a spray bottle filled
with white acrylic paint and water.
I think it did a good job!
The sentiment also comes from the same set. This has become one of my favorite
stamp sets. The moon is popped up with dimensional adhesive to give it a bit of depth.
Plus, I really like the shadow it casts.

Today is an absolutely gorgeous day. I still have yet to walk our dog, Crown. I think this is the first time since fall that I am actually looking forward to walking him. It has been cold this winter, and for me, winter has never been my friend. So why do I stay up here in Michigan? Well, it is beautiful, we have the seasons, and the winter keeps most of the bugs (at least the big ones) away. I can handle a bit of cold to keep them away... They give me the heebie-jeebies... shutter... 

Okay, well I am going to walk Crown and let you go back to enjoying your day. Take care all and thank you for stopping by today! I know we all have busy schedules and your visit is always appreciated. Take care and until next time, happy stamping.

All the best,

When I first saw this sketch I was also thinking 'moon', Shawna (what do they say about great minds, hey!!!!) and tried to put my idea to a card, but went another way in the end!!!! This is a very creative take on the sketch and for sure you did a great job with the stars and the whole design is fabulous, my friend!!!!
Have a great day!!!!
