Tomorrow is Earth Day, and I have it on my mind today.

This week's The Cat's Pajamas Tuesday challenge is hosted by Carole, who challenged us to make a card using a sketch. When I saw that circle, I saw the Earth, and that is where the card started. I printed the Earth image from NASA's web site. For all the papers, I used paper from my stash of recycled paper. I have a drawer full of card stock that was scrap from the printing and design department at work.

The card measures 6.25 x 3.5 inches, so it fits in a standard (non-invitation) envelope.

Happy Earth Day!! If you can, walk instead of drive tomorrow. Plant flowers or plan a garden. We have a beautiful home on the place we call Earth, so stop and take notice.

Here is my card:

Stuff used:
Stamps: All from The Cat's Pajamas: rocket and star field from It's a Mod, Mod World set, and flowers from the Spring Fling set
Paper: All from scrap card stock
Ink: Versafine Onxy Black, Palette New Canvas, Prismacolor pencils
Other: Cuttlebug D'vine Swirls embossing folder, Circle Nestabilities die to cut out Earth, dimentional foam dots to pop up rocket

Happy Earth Day to you, Alice! You're certainly do your part by using scrap card stock for this cute little project. I like how the blossom pattern is repeated in the rocket front.

And thank you so much for directing me to the doll moulds. I appreciate your time and effort in looking them up because I certainly couldn't find them! Now I just have to get a family member to give me early birthday and Christmas presents.

Alice, a very appropriate earth day card; i love it! to use the world as the circle was pretty clever; and that stamp goes perfectly with the theme! And in keeping with the theme, love how you used paper from your stash - the use of the flowers was PERFECTION! Great take on this challenge - very inspiring!
