Arrow August extra credit challenge

So - we have a solar eclipse coming up...and the Perseid meteor showers going on as well (which are supposed to be peaking this weekend if you haven't been following and want to take a look at them!!) ...

therefore -

It is time for another "outer space" challenge but this time we want to see stars, comets, planets, the moon, etc. -- but NO rockets, NO monsters, NO aliens!

Posts your completed outer space card or project as per the challenge guidelines by 8/31 to earn an entry into the August gift certificate drawing, and remember it must also use at least one product (but more is better) available past or present from PW!

I did !---was out with DH last night , we drove to a higher elevation 2 miles from here, great view, low horizons, took folding chairs, sat out in the dark on the side of the road and it was DARK, we live in the boonies here, and when eyes adjust we were sitting under the Milky way and watched the Perseid showers before the moon came up , about an hour window there. Probably saw abt dozen and half in half hour when clouds moving in obscured it, but a special time, so quiet and temperature nice. Only one car came by and stopped to check us out!

I think I have the perfect paper for this..

Haven't seen the meteor shower - too much city lights to see anything. The solar eclipse will be about 90% where I live.

I'll have to see what type of paper etc I have to join this challenge.

Outer Space paper by Designs by Reminisce.com, iridescent papers I think are PW but cant be sure, but the dazzle on inside is. Black stars are vinyl and star punch.
Photo does not show but the iridescent paper is more blue and purple like the colors of the space photo. Pretty IRL

Cool - glad some of you are getting to see the meteor shower. Mike left on his HD trip this morning and will be gone 3 weeks; I'm going to set my alarm and try to get up and drive a few miles down the road away from the few lights we have (very small town here, won't take long!) and try to see them too.

LOVE your card Heather!!!

The colors aren't showing up in the picture like they do IRL and neither does the sparkle. I used Distress Oxide inks, Distress Black Soot, Picket Fence Distress Paint, Shimmer Mist, Vellum and SOL Light4Jesus stamps.
