Rose Blossom Garden Challenge - Birthday Boy Key

I wanted to play along with the challenge over at Rose Blossom Challenge Blog.  This week we were challenged to use the "Birthday Boy" key.  And boy was it a challenge.  It took me a while to come up with something.  I started by cutting all the lunar shapes out of black cardstock at 1 1/4 inches.  I knew I wanted to use some Dream Pop paper too. I looked on the Freshly Made Sketches blog for a sketch and used sketch #13.  I added a little black trim to the top using my pinking scissors.  The lunar shapes are popped off the squares.  Inside I'll write the sentiment "You're Out of this World".  Thanks for looking.  You should play along too!
