When the moon is in the seventh house…

I’m sharing a card today made using Aquarius Betty from Simply B Stamps.

As this card is for an 18th I didn’t go CAS, like I’ve been doing so far this year, but more of my usual style of lots of layers.  I’ve also done this up as an easel card although I did still use a sketch from Sketch Saturday, #223 to be exact.  With my extra fold I am entering my card over at Alphabet Challenge.

This is how it looks open.

My card features Aquarius as that is the recipient’s star sign.  I did cut off the water that was drawn on the image and added in my own with some gel medium for some added interest.  To keep with the astrological theme I edged the circle element from the sketch with a starry border and to keep with the water theme used tulle trim and pearls for the horizontal element.

As the zodiac is based around mythology (one version of the story has Aquarius based on Ganymede, cup bearer to the Olympian gods) I am also entering my card in the current challenge at Get Creative.
