Fly Me to the Moon!

Attempting another card for this weeks Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge, which ends today.  I had so much fun with this card! 
For  the longest time I didn't know what to do with this 6X6 bit of dp that you see in the background, but today, it jumped out at me as a perfect backdrop for the night sky.  It makes the perfect stellar bodies to me.  Along with this other dp strip accross the front which also has a cosmic feel.  I used the stars from Paper Smooches stamp set Space Cadet.  I was gonna use one of the little alien's too, but I decided the card was better without. The moon was made using a circle punch, outlined in black to match the stars and coulds and so it would stand out a little more against the background, and then paper crimped. 
The whole time I was making this card I was singing Frank Sinatra's version of Fly Me to the Moon in my head. :)  Then of course I couldn't get it out, so I had to break out the CD and listen to it.   Despite not feeling good today (or yesterday) this has been an OK Sunday for me.
