Green Rocket Bling: RIC#50, CTS#58, P4P#228

Waltzingmouse Stamps Half Pint Heroes, Lawn Fawn Cole's ABCs

I love the colours in the latest Runway Inspired Challenge, my only problem was I needed a little boys card and my mind kept showing me beautiful white embossed flowers. (Must see if I can do this before the challenge ends!) I stamped the rocket from Waltzingmouse Stamps Half Pint Heroes and used the shades of green, a little grey and white enamel found in the inspiration photo to colour. To highlight Jack's age I stamped the 5 in Memento New Sprout ink and brushed clear Wink of Stella over it. I also added some onto the light green on the  rocket to mimic the sheen of the fabric, plus some Star Dust Stickles to the rocket's plume. My port hole is covered in a copious amount of Glossy Accents and ringed with white enamel to mirror the sunglasses in the photo. I have used CAS(E) this sketch #58 for my card layout.

As usual at this time of year, natural daylight is in short supply and all my glittery bling appears quite understated. I assure you the card shines bright to the naked eye. I captured a little of it from the Stickles, Glossy Accents and enamel. However the Wink of Stella has remained elusive to the camera lens!
