Buzz Lightyear to the Rescue

One of my favorite movies is Toy Story.  I have enjoyed all 3 movies in this series.  I always worry when I see an animated movie come out with a sequel that it will not be as good as the first one.  I have been pleasantly surprised with each sequel to this movie.  I love the characters and the jokes that are told.  I have to say, I was disappointed not to see Bo Peep back in the 3rd movie.  I always liked her. 

My husband is a HUGE Toy Story fan.  His favorite characters are Woody and Buzz.  So I wanted to created a card that would include at least on of these on the front.  Once again,  I turned to punch queen Ellen Kemper for inspiration and she did not let me down. 

This card is a standard 4 1/4" x 5 1/2".  When I went to Ellen's site for help, she had a full Buzz Lightyear that would work great on a scrapbook page but for me was too large to use on a card.  So I decided to do only the top have of Buzz so it would fit nicely.  There are way too many punches to list here but if you really want a list, I will be happy to provide one.  Just let me know.  I used an impression folder from Cuttlebug with stars on it to make the background.  I thought since Buzz travels through space the stars fit his personality nicely.  White gel pen dots have been added to the areas between the stars.  I have to tell you, my husband loved this.  It is proudly displayed in his home office along with a few other I have made him. 

Since making this card, I have seen lots of other characters and am going to work on each of them.  But first I must finish the rest of my projects for this week.  Thanks for dropping in today.  See you tomorrow.
