Fly Me To The Moon - MME Card Challenge #24


Of course I waited to the last minute to make T's card for Father's Day. Had been pondering the card sketch at the MME blog for about a week, not quite sure how to use it but really wanting to make it work for this card. Then while the kids were snacking on bomb pops yesterday it suddenly hit me - a rocket ship! And because the theme along with the sketch was to use a song for the title - Frank Sinatra's Fly Me To The Moon would be perfect to draw it all together. I used Alphabet Soup, Meadowlark and Stella Rose.


As you can see, I used a little artistic liscense with the sketch and turned it on it's side, but all the elements are still there - the stripes on the ship, the 3 windows/leg and the solid base behind - the flames.

I also used Clearsnap Colorbox Queue inks to highlight the edges of the rocket and flame and Smooch on the "welds" of the rocket. And we sent 3 little chromosomed penguins aboard to represent daddy's little loves. Along with a fat steak, some potato salad and deviled eggs, this will hopefully bring a smile to his face.

Have a great weekend!!
