Mix It Up

This week the Pile It On challenge is asking you to mix it up, that is, mix up the scale of your patterns.  Use a small scale pattern (my sample has the small stars dp) and a large scale pattern (my sample has the large outerspace dp).   The only other thing you have to remember is to make your card or project fit into at least one other challenge.  If you need some help finding other challenges then the Pile It On blog is perfect for you.  You can see what the rest of the design team came up with as well as all the challenges they are going to enter and lucky for you, there will be links to all those challenges.  Also on the sidebar there's lots of challenges with links listed. 
This week the challenge is sponsored by Jellypark where you can find some of the cutest images on earth (or in the sky like the one I'm using).  You have to play with us for a chance to win 2 digis.

don't forget the inside
My card uses space rocket and while I was making a card for a little boy this image could just as easily be used for a little girl.  All kids want to go into space. Some days we parents would like to send them there. 
Here's the deets:
stamp - Jellypark  "Space Rocket" digi
ink - hp printer
paper - unmarked blue cs base; Stampin' Up "Peach Parfait" and "Crushed Curry" cs; Crate Paper "Orbit " collection dp; October Afternoon "Campfire" collection dp
