Astronaut

I'm here to share my DT card for the new PHOTO challenge over at Catch the Bug, featuring the image Astronaut 3.

My starting point was the image, which I colored with Promarkers before I added glossy accent to the helmet. Then I found a DP from a Pebbles paper pad I thought suited the "out of space theme". The earth is cut using a Tim Holtz die, I covered it with silver EP and heat embossed it.
Finally I stamped a birthday greeting in Norwegian. 

This card is alsro for these challenges:
