Cards for men are seeing Stars

I quite enjoyed this card for the Cards for Men challenge.  The theme this time is 'Stars' and we are sponsored, once again by the fabulous, Stamping Boutique.

  I'm Tracey Malnofski, the artist and owner of The Stamping Boutique. My team and I are very happy to sponsor Cards for Men. My store has been open since September 2009.I am currently a stamp artist for UnityStampCo. and I've worked for InStyleStamps, Squigglefly, and TheDigiShack in the past. I'm a professional artist and an active member of the Artist' Guild in my community. I have quite a busy household with a husband, 3 teenagers, 5 mini-dachshunds and an Appaloosa mare. It's noisy, but I love them all. I'm truly blessed.

"The Stamping Boutique" is dedicated to quality products and original artwork. We not only provide wonderful digital images in our store, but also several lines of red rubber images. Our designers are chosen for their character and personality,as well as, their beautiful designs. We work hard to give you our very best. Thank you so much for having us as your sponsor this week.

The prize is 5 digis of your choice and you'll have a hard time deciding, I can tell you.  You can get the full details and lots of inspiration over on the main challenge post.

We got some fab images to use from Tracey and I chose this one, Spaceship, which I coloured quite simply with my Promarkers (largely Ice Greys).  The sentiment is a stamp from Pollycraft - the cogs and critters ones.  Inside it says 'Cosmic Birthday'.  The cardstock is from Cored'inations and the backing paper is DCWV - Boys will be Boys.  You can't see it so much in my photo but the backing paper has glittery stars at the centre of each circle.
