Reach for the Stars

My second card today is a masculine 'Good Luck' card.

I love using this Inkadinkado stamp for good luck cards.  I bought it many, many years ago, as the sentiment is just perfect.  It also reminded me of the S Club 7 song, 'Reach for the Stars', which we sang every week when I was a teacher of 4 - 7 year olds, to remind children to reach for their goals.  So, back to my card.... I stamped the image/sentiment using a Versafine 'Majestic Blue' ink pad and coloured the moon with a gold Wink of Stella glitter pen. The frame was made using two of the dies from the Lil' Inker 'Stitched Mats: Dual Stitched Squares'.  The embossed background has stars in the crossovers of the lattice pattern, although it hasn't come out very clearly in the photograph.  Isn't it strange what makes you buy crafty things?  I visited a new craft shop earlier this year and was tempted by this embossing folder by Couture Creations 'Grand Jo Jo'.  My great nephew calls my daughter Joanna, 'Jo Jo', so I soon as I saw what the folder was called, my mind was made up and I popped it in my basket!

I would like to enter my card for the following challenges:
