For the Kids

Hey there!
Today is the first card challenge of the month over at Cards In Envy. The challenge is: For the Kids: Create a card that is "for the kids!" Birthday, encouragement, hello-- any occasion as long as it is clearly made for a child.
I used Shimelle True Stories for this boy's birthday card:

I used an acetate card, stitched it to the polka dotted background paper and then fussy cut another rocket ship and popped that up on top using foam tape. I added a few cards along with some Making Memories mini alphas for my sentiment:

Thanks for stopping by and hope you will play along!
