At our local stamp club meeting on the 18th we were given a mystery item to use for a card swap. This item is great and I actually got my card made for our Feb. 22 meeting!

The item was a little stamped box. I chose a brown one.
I wanted to make a card that reminded me of our trip to Roswell, NM the first of the month. Now, isn't this a hoot!!! The embellishments are from a package called Space Glow Stickers & Gems.
The planet was made using a plate from my kitchen! I lightly drew the edge on a piece of paper with a pencil, carefully cut it out and debossed it with an embossing folder to look like craters. The background print was from my stash.
I stamped the alien balloons on colored card stock and used Journey Glaze to give them a shine. I had to hand cut my astronaut and balloons as there are no dies for them but they weren't that difficult.
I think my card will be totally "out of the box" for this mystery item but I won't know until our meeting.
He tends His flock like a shepherd. He gathers the lambs in His arms and carries them close to His heart; He gently leads those that have young. Isaiah 40:11
