Papertrey Ink Out of this World new baby card

Hello everyone, 

I'm really enjoying the festivities over at Papertrey Ink, and haven't had my mojo in such good tune for ages. I've reached 2011, when the Boy Basics sets were released. I've made this fun card with the Out of this World set for a young friend who is pregnant and has just been told she is expecting a boy.

1) Paint a planet background with watercolours and speckle some water over it. When it is dry, die cut it with a stitched circle die.

2) Stamp and die cut the rocket and colour it in. Stamp, colour and fussy cut the fire trail.

3) Die cut a stitched rectangle and stamp the 321 sentiment towards the bottom of the panel, and stamp the rest of the sentiment from Hooray in red beneath it.

4) Layer everything up and add a few little stars to finish it off.

I'd like to play along with
