Masculine Card Series #10: Alien Card

It's been a rainy past few days in New Brunswick and I have had zip for energy.  Finally got a wee bit to make this card tonight as I forgot to do it last night.  Call it teaching and getting ready for the June rush!
I have had this sheet of patterned paper for years and while flipping through the manual for Boys will Be Boys, I saw the alien and UFO image and thought it would go perfect together.  The patterned paper reminded me of little stars!
The card base is an A2 size card.  The dark blue mat is 5 1/4" x 4", the white mat is 5" x 3 3/4", and the patterned paper mat measures 4 3/4" x 3 1/2".  The grey strip at the bottom measures 3 1/2" x 1 1/2" and was embossed using the Seeing Spots Cuttlebug folder.  I also ripped it at the top.  I loved the way it made it look like craters on the moon...
The UFO is found on p. 69 of the Boys Will Be Boys Cricut Cartridge and was cut at 2".  The alien was cut at 3" and can be found on p. 70. I also used dimensionals on him and googly eyes instead of the eyes from the Cricut cut. All cuts are from my scraps!  A great way to get rid of even the smallest pieces (I keep everything!)
The inside sentiment is from Stampin' Up.
I entered this card in the following challenges:
Celebrate the Occassion #64: Anything Goes
Die Cutting Divas #67:  Anything Goes
Party Time Tuesday #70:  Anything Goes
Tuesday Throwdown #100: Masculine Theme
