The Space Race is on Fab'n'Funky

Hi everyone,
Wednesday is here and that means a new challenge at

Our host this week is the fabulous Wends who has chosen the theme
 "The Space Race"
I think the release of the new Star Wars movie 
had a bit to do with her selection and what a fun one it is.

Our wonderful sponsor this week is

I chose to colour with copics "Yoda Honey" from Sassy Studio Designs

I must say...I loved making this card.  It was for my SIL's birthday and was it a hit!
The family had binge-watched the whole Star Wars series
before heading to see the new release and "Yoda"was fresh on their minds.
Not mine so much mind you...I had to use Google to remember he was
in kind of a bog and from there chose my papers and die cuts.

The inside of the card read "look as good, you will not"

I started by tearing some kraft paper, then some adhesive backed cork  and
finally a scrap of  embossed old gold paper. 
 Added TH vintage photo to the edges.
Trees and Branches are MB Dies
Cheesecloth is used to resemble his tufts of white hair
DP and twine from my stash
Yellow Stickles added to his light saber?

I would like to enter the following challenges:

Thanks for stopping by today.

LOL Pat, you made me grin from ear to ear when I saw this card. You have captured Yoda so utterly and completely in this card. The scene is fantastic and his tendrils of hair, inspired! I LOVE the sentiment too, a perfect Star Wars quote to have used and your colouring, swoon, I'm still oggling it, trying to work out how you got it quite so perfect! Perfect, right down the the glitter on his light saber!!! Thank you friend for embracing my challenge so brilliantly! Hugs, Wends x
