A Gem of a Challenge - 1st one a Sketch

Todays card has been created for the "A Gem of a Challenge" its their first one and its a sketch. The image Ive used is Max the Spaceman by Pink Gem, Ive stamped him onto white card and coloured him with my copic pens, then cut him out in a oval shape, then mounted him onto a piece of dark pearlescent card.
The base card is a 8"x 8" white card with a first layer of dark card and one of three papers from Nitwit Downloads called Spaced Out, Ive arranged it into three and put the papers into these partitions, and stuck some ribbon down the devisions. Ive then stuck my mounted image in the left hand one, and my sentiment in the centre, this is also one of Janets new stamps.
To finish of Ive used some of my alien buttons and spaceships, and a few stars down the edge.
