Honor, Truth and Loyalty

I'm a little behind this week. I think I am every week aren't I? LOL Well, our (as she says) almost 9 yr. old Granddaughter was here most of the week. We crafted. I didn't get any of my stuff done, but we had such a wonderful time!!! I'll have to post pictures later.
This card is for http://paperplaytime.blogspot.com/ challenge # 2 where Mary from CardzTV is playing the Paper Queen this week. This is due by midnight Alaska time Sunday 6/13. Mary used the quote inspired,
"Honor, Truth and Loyalty." You could interpret it any way you like. I did an 8 1/2x5 1/2 card,  I used the rocket from Independance Day Cartridge and my Gypsy. The rocket on the 3rd roll I cut 2 blue and 4 cream at 1.80x3.59. Then I hid the star on the 4th roll rocket and the little bit of spark and cut 2 in red at 1.32x3.71. Then I hid everything except the star and cut 8 stars at 1.32x3.71. I layered a red rocket on top of a cream rocket, cut the solid piece and the stem from a blue rocket and layered it on top of the red. I then cut the burst and string from one of the cream and layered that on and then used Star Dust stickles on the burst. I layered 2 stars together and put 2 sets on the solid blue, cutting off half of the one on the left. I then pop dotted one rocket to the front of my card. I had picked another paper for my top paper but saw last night that someone had used this paper so sent DH (he's such a dear!) to HL to get the paper that I used. I cut the first patterned paper at 8 1/4x5 1/4. The top layer at 7 3/4x4 3/4. (It looks like someones photo!) I used white glitter letter stickers for the 'Honor'. On the inside I also used a cream sheet that I cut at 7 1/4x4 1/4. I glued the other rocket here and used red and blue letter stickers for the 'Truth' and 'Loyalty'.
Hope you like my card. Thanks for stopping by and leaving me a little comment. I really love hearing from ya'll! :)
