Rio Birthday Girl

This is one of those last minute submissions into the Simply Betty Stamps Challenge - I've been thinking it's been Wednesday ALL day today!! So somehow I missed a day in my week and thankfully it wasn't a Saturday. ;D The challenge this week is to make an all white card except for the coloring.

My strategy was to get all my white items out on the counter and then start putting it together. Because it was mostly white, I wanted to keep the coloring as light as possible so I chose more soft-toned colors and tried to keep some white highlights. One of the things I added was a small note that gets tucked inside a velum envelope on the card.

Did you know? Deep Impact is a NASA space probe launched on January 12, 2005. It was designed to study the composition of the comet interior of 9P/Tempel, by releasing an impactor into the comet. Previous space missions to comets, such as Giotto and Stardust, were fly-by missions. These missions were only able to photograph and examine the surfaces of cometary nuclei from a distance. The Deep Impact mission was the first to eject material from a comet's surface, and the mission garnered large publicity from the media, international scientists, and amateur astronomers.
