Space Hello

A lot of my family and friends live a few thousand miles away, and it often feels like they're living on a whole 'nother planet. That single random thought was an inspiration for this card.

I pulled out a couple of Paper Smooches stamps: Space Cadets and Bitty Bungallows.  The sentiment is from Chit Chat. The most fun part of creating this card was, of course, the coloring. I used my watercolor pencils and added a few highlights with a white gel pen.

I'm entering this in the Paper Smooches SPARKS challenge: Anything goes.
