Yoyo Trick - The Flying Saucer

It's the fifth Monday of the month, which means there is an Anything Goes Challenge at Double Trouble #85. Our challenges are usually biweekly but this one lasts only one week - from Monday, May 31, through Sunday evening, June 6, 2021. We always have three "Things" to our challenges so here they are for this one:
1. Trouble Maker's Thing 1 (required) is the theme: "Anything Goes".
2. Double Dare's Thing 2 (optional) is to link your card to any of our previous sponsors. There is a list at the DTC Blog. I linked my card to Crafting Happiness Challenges #98
3. Twisted Sister's Thing 3 (optional) is to celebrate the ups and downs of "Yoyo Day". Select a yoyo trick for inspiration and make a birthday card.
Reminder: Participation in each "Thing" adds one more chance in our Random Draw.

The yoyo trick I selected can be seen HERE at the 14:15 time mark. Called the Flying Saucer or UFO trick it's impressive and was the inspiration for my Flying Saucer card. I stamped two planet surfaces and a couple of space monsters then colored them with Copic markers and fussy cut them. I applied the patterned paper (constellation map) to the gray card base. Next, the stamped images were added to the card with foam tape. The sentiment was stamped and added. The inside was lined with a panel of white cardstock and decorated with a scrap of the planet's surface and a space monster.

Join our challenge fun by selecting your favorite yoyo trick and designing a card! Check out our guidelines at the DTC85 Blog. and I know you'll enjoy Crafting Happiness #98, too.
