Alien Birthday

Here is a birthday card that is out of this world!!  :)
 
The card is 8"x4" and the card base is made with a shimmery blue cardstock.  I then cut some white cardstock at 7 3/4"x3 3/4" and some patterned blue paper at 7 1/2"x3 1/2."  I cut a piece of white cardstock at 4 1/2"x2 1/2" and adhered it near the right side of the card.  I used Space Party to cut my alien at 3 1/2."  The stars are all from Cricut American Alphabet and are cut at various sizes: 1," 1 1/2," 3" and 3 1/2" from glittery white and yellow cardstock.  Most of the stars are adhered to the card, but a few were adhered with pop-dots and the alien was also adhered with pop-dots.  My sentiment is a stamp from Fiskars.

 
I also finished the inside of the card.  I cut some more white cardstock at 7 3/4"x3 3/4" and more patterned blue paper at 7 1/2"x3 1/2."  The large glittery white star is 3 1/2" and the glittery yellow star is cut at 3" and the plain white star is 2 1/2."  I used Cricut American Alphabet for all of them again.  I used a stamp from Scrappy Moms for the inside sentiment.

 I made this for the following challenges:
