Sparkle and Shine Challenge

Hello there!
Today I am joining the fun over at Sparkle and Shine Challenge
They have a sketch for you!

A very interesting sketch, isn't it!?

After I was done making this card, I decide to enter in the Little Tangles Challenge as well since I used a lot of dies!

AND! I also realized that my 3 colors are "Gallon/Quart/Pint" ratio as one of the lessens over at My Favorite Things, so why not enter it!? 

Here is my card:-)

I was pretty true to the sketch, and am so happy with how this card turned out!
See, Night of navy is my gallon, Silver is my quart, and Daffodil Delight is my pint. A good advise usually sticks to you, because I really wasn't trying!
I just got that globe die from, such a dangerous place for shopping! You can literally find anything you're looking for! or in my case, I find things I wasn't looking for.....LOL 

This super adorable rocket stamp set is from Studio Calico, they were having these ridiculous sales every week, and this set was dirt cheap! plus free shipping! I couldn't resist... and I am glad I bought it! The set gives you a boy and a girl to sit inside the rocket. I chose the boy for this one because this is going to be my 2nd surprise card for my husband! *wink*
I actually colored the rocket with the silver glitter pen, but not a lot of glitter came out :-( Oh well, I think this card has enough sparkles anyway, right!?

Of course I had to add some silver star sequins!
This Sparkle and Shine challenge does not require you to use Pretty Pink Posh sequins, but required or not, I can always use them on my cards! ;-)

My notes...

Paper: Thick Whisper White, Night of Navy, Daffodil Delight, Silver Foil Sheet, Typeset SDSP, Maritime DSP
