Exploring Cricut and More Happy Birthday Challenge

This week at Exploring Cricut & More the challenge is to make a birthday card, but to have shimmer or sparkle on it. Here is my project-

This was made using the Nifty Fifties cartridge. All of the paper was out of my scrap stash. I cut the rocket and sentiment at 4". The sentiment was computer generated using a Retro font I found on the internet. The background paper was a deal I found at a local craft store for a dime per piece! It's called Robot #6 by Best Creations and has all kinds of sparkle in it.

I'm going to give one lucky commenter a chance at the blog candy that didn't get claimed last time-

And if I reach 110 followers, I will add this-
