batty birthday!

Hi everyone!  I *fiiiinally* had some time to play around with my Paper Smooches stamps, and, if I do say so myself, I think I got pretty creative with the 3 sets I have!  My mom asked me to make a birthday card for her friend... after a while of looking at the images and trying to figure out what I was going to use, the thought occurred to me that I should try to make it look like the bat (Falling for You) was hanging from the birthday sentiment (Pretty Phrases)!  I'm not sure how well I pulled that off, but these little guys crack me up anyway.  :D  I colored them in with my copics and cut out little party hats (Birthday Buddies) for them to wear.  Each hat was topped off with a coordinating gem from Target's dollar spot.  The sentiment was stamped with Autumn Leaves turquoise ink and the entire piece was cut out with my Nestabilities.  I adore the patterned paper from My Mind's Eye Home collection, so I tried to fit in as many patterns as I could.  hehe ;)  

For the inside of the card, I pieced together several different sentiments to create my own custom message:

I also used up the scraps from the strips of patterned paper I had cut- cute, huh?  I really had a fun time putting this card together, and I hope my mom's friend gets a laugh out of it.  :D  Thanks for stopping by, I hope you're having a GREAT Tuesday! :)
