Halt, and be fricasseed

Today I’m sharing a birthday card for my niece featuring the fun Space Cadet Tia from Some Odd Girl.

My niece is a bit of Star Wars tragic (takes after her dad on that much to her mother’s disgust) so I couldn’t go past this cute image, especially as it reminds me a bit of her.  Over at Use Your Stuff they are looking for Star Wars or galaxy themed projects.  I have to admit I am one of about two people on earth who’ve never seen a Star Wars movie so no idea if Tia looks anything like a character from there.  But I do have a sparkly blue background (meant to be the starry outer space) and a space cadet with a laser gun so am thinking I fit the galaxy part so am entering my card in the challenge.

The Paper Players have a fun tic-tac-toe board and I’ve chosen the middle horizontal row to help make up my card.  I’ve got a die cut for my sentiment, yellow accents on Tia and the laser beam and sequins to form part of the laser beam.  To help tie in the colours I coloured up a bit of Curious Metallics card in the same yellows I used on Tia before die cutting my sentiment.

As this card is CAS and features glitter (in my paper, the cleanest way of using glitter by far) and sequins I am also entering it in the current challenge at CAS onSunday.  This had started out as the year of the shaker for me but I keep going back to CAS, which I fell in love with last year, so it’s good to be using my shaker mixes in non-shaker card ways.
