Stellar Birthday Turned Thankful! Fancy Friday Gratitude Challenge!

I am BACK!!!  It looks like I took a bit of a holiday break.  This was not my intent...actually had some fun plans on what I wanted to share...but then I was consumed with holiday and family time...and I honestly had a great time.   So if you find your way back here again, THANK YOU!  It is good to be back with you! 😀

Kicking things off for the year with an OUT OF THIS WORLD card!  (Hee...see what I did there?!). Decembers Fancy Friday Challenge was all about Gratitude!   Since I seem to think Pinks & Coastal Cabana with with every theme (just try to prove me wrong!  I can alway make it work!  😂😂😂) ... I stuck with this fun & bright color combo.  What do you think?  Do these colors work for an "out of this world" themed card?!

Fun Fact about me...I LOVE space!  I regret not even trying to get into the space industry.  I think, dream, watch TikTok, read articles, etc about space all the time.  I am fascinated.  So I just HAD to have these cute little astronauts in my stamp collection.  There is a cute little boy & girl astronaut.  I used the girl here, but I'm going to have to make one with the boy too.  I LOVE them!  What do you think?!  

With this watercolor wash that I did, I really wanted then pink & blue to mix and create more color depth...since the astronaut is floating around in space, right?!  A pink and blue and full of color space world, anyway.  Hee.  So I love the purples that formed when they did mix.  THIS is a space I could float around in for forever.  Haha.  

I hope you enjoy this card!  And since this much is all about gratitude...

I just have to take a quick moment and say that I am SO GRATEFUL to be on this fabulous Stampin' Fancy Friday Design Team!  There is SO MUCH TALENT just oozing out of all the fabulous humans that I am fortunate to be on this team with.  My advice is that you check out everyone's projects by heading to the Facebook Page (Stampin' Fancy Friday) or Instagram Page (@stampinfancyfriday).  Just prepare to be WOW'ed!  Hee.
