Star Wars

My grandson will be 7 next month. He has an 8 yr old brother. And there is nothing you want to know about Star Wars that they cannot tell you. So I found a pack of Star Wars theme paper from Creative Imaginations. I made this card for the 7 yr old.
I had only a portion of an R2D2 left so I punched out just the top with a circle punch. That is backed with a blue scallop and then a silver metallic circle. The blue background and the black with silver dots are part of the  DP pack. I punched out a white tag and then punched stars at random and backed it with the silver metallic. There are 3 stars punched out of the silver metallic accenting the top left of the card. This is all really busy but I know my grandson will be wild about it.
 I was totally inspired by Brian King's use of the sketch by The Paper Players. I loved the pom pom tie he made for his tag. I used thin silver ribbon for mine. Okay, I know we don't usually use ribbon on boy cards. Does that cancel out if I used duct tape on the inside?

 I also liked the way he tilted the focal point of the sketch. So I guess I pretty much cased Brian's card. I hope he doesn't mind.
Here is the inspiration sketch
