Rocket to the Moon

Very late again tonight, we had friends drop in around tea time with some wood so we asked them to stay for a meal with us. I had corned silverside cooking so made some mashed potatoes and veg to go with it. I wanted to make some mustard sauce but searched high and low for the mustard powder to no avail. So it turned into cheese sauce instead!
I had the neighbour's lawyer ring about the assault I witnessed a couple of months ago but I am not keen on having my name bandied around the court as I am wary of the man retaliating. He told me the police had found this man and were trying to charge him with assault so I could be called as a witness anyway. I hope not. I just wanted the man to stop attacking my neighbour, which is what he did when I yelled at him. He is still going to mention that a neighbour witnessed the assault and hope the judge doesn't want my name, if he does, the lawyer will be ringing me again possibly to try and convince me to agree to having my name mentioned in the court case. This is a separate case concerning a civil matter and separate to the one the police are trying to make. Aaaargh!!
I finally finished putting inserts and writing out my Christmas cards today and posted them out this afternoon. Crazy! I've had them made for months and still left it to the last week to organize them. I feel better that they should arrive either tomorrow or Wednesday.
Well anyway onto my card,
I have used SU Night of Navy as my cardbase and then a DP from a cre8tiv mini paper stack. I really like this paper it does look like stars shining. I added some holographic stars to give it a bit more shine although they may not show up on the scan. (Oh. I just checked the scan and you can see them, they haven't shown true to colour though, but still look ok??) I used a small round diecut which I sponged with Close to Cocoa and made little marks all over it with a yellow Copic Marker to hopefully make it look like the moon. The rocket is a freebie digi again and coloured with Copics and then popped onto the card with foam dots. The sentiment is from a See-D's set of stamps and I used an oval punch to cut it out and Pacific Point Ink to sponge around it.
I would like to enter this into Make It Monday Challenge #68 - Anything Goes.
I think you could use this card for a birthday or as a congratulatory card for something achieved.
Off to bed, Thanks for stopping by and to those that comment, I appreciate them.
