A Glittery one for the boys

Now that might seem an unusual combination, but I made this card and realised that not only would it fit Simon Says Challenge, which this week was "For the boys" but also Secret Crafter's challenge which was to add glitter as I'd already glittered the spaceman




The image comes from a Crafters Companion CD, which I don't use very often, but a friend had asked for a card on a space theme for her son, and I remembered the CD had some space images on it.  I've decoupaged the image and put onto SU! Whisper White cs and added a couple of silver stars (peel offs) layered onto some silver cardstock from my stash and Stampin' Up! Real Red. I then stamped out the spaceman from the matching stampset onto acetate and have glittered him from behind.  I love glitter, but boy, does it get everywhere, so I'm sitting here sparkling like a Christmas fairy at the moment!  I cut around the spaceman to make the "dangler" which I've then attached to the top of the card.  I've also used some Sakura Glaze pens on the back of the image to colour his badges, gloves, boots & visor. The sentiment is also from the CD.
