Take Me to the Moon

I was looking at yet another NBUS stamp set 'Party Dots' Neat & Tangled and thought that big dot with all the little dots makes me think of the moon. So I decided to use for the CASology Challenge.

 I stamped on Dark blue cardstock and embossed with silver. Only stamped part of the circle as it was just too big and overpowering in full. I love the illusion it has made.

I had a sentiment 'Love you to the Moon and back' but the borrowers have it for now. It's been on loan for about a year now, expect it to turn up sometime in the next year. If I was good on my Silhouette I could cut the sentiment but too busy stamping, colouring, sorting the craft room and it needs to go up the list of to dos.

Anyway I like this sentiment because it makes me think of saying to someone sit back, relax and "Take the time to enjoy the simple things" like the stars and the moon......

Okay thats my take on it, nice and simple. looks brilliant with the silver embossing even if I do say so myself.

Time to link it up to the CASology: Week 163 : Moon Challenge

I hope you enjoy your visit and come again soon.
