City Crafter - Out of this World (and Pro-Am showdown # 4)

I have chosen this week's challenge at City Crafter  and the theme is 'Out of This World' -  make a project on the theme of outer space, the planets or stars - or use the phrase, 'out of this world'.

For my DT project I decided to use my self-imposed challenge - Pro -Am Showdown.  (which I seem to be well behind with btw)  and take inspiration from a commercially produced (or 'pro') card. And here is the card:
The professional card that inspired me
This birthday card was received by my  son, and I love the colour scheme and the retro space theme. 

For my card, I used stamps from two Gerda Steiner sets (the alien and the spaceship) ,star stamps (a mix of sets) sentiment (Clearly Besotted) and a star embossing folder . 

Lots of stamp companies have bought out space-themed sets recently, so , if you've bought them or if you want to get creative with old stash, I'd love to see you enter your project at City Crafter. 

I'd like to enter:

  8. I really like this color combo, suits the theme too. It's a great alternative, one I keep forgetting, to use colored inks instead of coloring to bring color to a design...
