Telescope Birthday Card

I had a card project this week to create a telescope birthday card.  I had a little fun playing with these pattern paper pieces from my stash along with this digital image from Bugaboo.

There is lots of layering in the card along with several different sentiment stamps, punched butterfly, brads, bling, a button and ribbon.  

Sentiments stamps by Stampin Up and All Night Media (other stamps are not marked).  Image coloured with Copic Markers. 

Thank you for stooping by.  Have a creative day.
