Child's Valentine Card and WINNER!!

Hi everyone and happy Thursday!! I hope you are having a great day!! I have a winner to announce for my Cricut cartridge giveaway!! But first, I have a card to enter into a couple of challenges...and since I'm giving away a Space Party cart, I thought I'd make my card a space theme!!

The challenge this week at Cooking With Cricut is to make a Valentine card for a child and use the colors red, white and pink. All of the paper is from Core'dinations. The rocket is from Just Because Cards, and I welded the shadows together to make the base of the card. I embossed the red with Swiss Dots and the gray with a folder I have no idea what it is called. It has groups of three dots.

The cute little astronaut is from Life's A Party. I cut him at 2". He is embossed with the Sizzex Diamond embossing folder. I used my Gypsy to cut a hole in the mask so I could stamp the adorable Peachy Keen face, from the PK-754 Critter Faces set. I added a heart from George and Basic Shaes and popped it up with foam tape.

I attached the little astronaut with a homemade wobble or wiggle wire! The inspiration for this was from my dear friend Amy of Love to Crop! If you haven't seen it yet, Amy created a fabulous tutorial on how to make your own wiggle wires! Click HERE to see the tutorial! And then, after you make your own, she has a challenge going on right now on her blog...click HERE to link up your wiggle wire project!!

I used Tim Holtz Fired Brick distress ink. "I love you all the way to the moon & back" is from K Andrew Designs It's Valentines stamp set! I just love this set...there are so many great sentiments and not just for Valentine's day!! You can use this set all year long!! Aren't the lips awesome??!!

I am entering the card in the following challenges:

And now for the winner of the Cricut Space Party cartridge!!

I used Random.org to choose, and it chose as the winning number..............
