Spacy kids card

I made this space themed card for my grandson's birthday!!  He is really into planets and space right now so I started with a fun background that I created using a rainbow of die cut zigzags cut with a large Sizzix border die.  I glued them to a black cardstock and trimmed it down to 4" x 5.25" and layered it onto a yellow card.  I created the planet using a large red oval from which I cut a smaller oval (SU) and then inserted a 1.75" circle (SU).  I added clear sparkle glitter with a gel pen on the red oval to simulate the airy rings.  The little alien robot (Dearie Dolls) is a digital image to which I added a greeting before laser printing and then distressed the edges after trimming.  I cut a navy layer from duplex cardstock, embossed the edges with distressed dots from an embossing folder (TH) and then sanded them to make a starry sky.  I also distressed the edges of this layer and after adhering them together I mounted them to my card front using 3D foam tape.  A really fun card to a great little guy who is growing up so fast!!!
