Girl Alien Card

Hi everyone

Today I am going to share a card I made, to enter into the current SPARKS challenge

Here's the card I made:

When I saw the colors for this challenge, I immediatley thought of them as somewhat girly colors. I still remember the first time I stumbled upon the pink/yellow color combo in school, and actually made a mental note about how well they worked together and how girly they looked. Back then, the painting I did was using light/vibrant yellow and hot pink, but still, this SPARKS color story made me think of it. So I decided to do something girly. Then I was thinking about what image to use the yellow on, and the little alien from Paper Smooches' "Little Fella" came to mind. By adding a bow, I easily turned that boy alien into a girl alien. So fun =) I stamped everything on colored cardstock, cut it out, and paper pieced it together. For the planet the alien is standing on, I colored white cardstock with purple and blue ink, cut it out with a circle die, and debossed it with a dotted embossingfolder to look like craters on the planet. The planet and alien were adhered to a white cardbase using foam adhesive.

Edited to add:
I completely forgot that I was going to enter this into the current Bunny Zoe's Crafts challenge too! Their challenge is all about girls, and hopefully this girl alien will qualify =)

Thanks for stopping by my blog today!
