Up, UP, and AWAY !!!!!!

I made this card to wish my youngest nephew a great BIG HAPPY 8th Birthday!!!!!  I went with a theme idea for his gift and bought him a rocket.  So you can imagine my suprise when the challenge for this week at "less is More" was Up, UP, and AWAY !!!!!! For this card I used Pacifica Cardstock and my Cricut Artiste cartridge.  As if cutting it from my Cricut wasn't simple enough the rest was just backing the card with glitter trim and Confetti B&T paper.  I finally added some stars and epoxy bubbles to lend to the outer space feel of the card.  Viola quick and simple and yet SO perfect for a boy's birthday and a less is more challenge !
