Sleepy Moon Part 2

So let me cast you back to January... I created this card HERE and I really didn't like it!
It's been playing on my mind ever since and my friend had her bubba yesterday :D :D So I knew it was time to get moving, so I started from scratch and created a new card.. using the same design base really.

Here it is!

I like it soooooooooooooooo much more!!! So I am jolly happy about packaging this up with a bundle of goodies and sending it off to Canada :) 
This design really works well for me! Definitely more solid than my tent card, and it looks neater too! Here is a side view so you can see the dimensions (I Created an envelobox to go with it)

I used the adorable Sleephead Moon from Paper Shelter again. I do love the adorable images from the Paper Shelter :)
Here is a close up look at the moon which I have cute out and attached the stars by thread. It can spin freely amoungst the clouds (Which were a fab freebie from Meljens yesterday!!!)

 Last but not least here is a front on view of the card! Its soooooooo sweet! I love it

I hope you like! I'd be intreagued to know how you think it compares against the first one! I am sooo much happier with it!
