Happy Birthday!!

While I love this image from Motivet, I was a little uninspired when I started painting.  However, once I got going I fell in love with everything about the card!!
The patterned paper is an old piece from my stash so I don't know where its from.  The solid papers are all Coredinations paper.  The image is from Motivet and he's called Birthday Morris.  I love how his cheeks are puffing out...he's trying so hard to blow out those candles!!  lol  I (sort of) used the sketch from Mojo Monday...it's flipped around and rearranged, but I like how it turned out  :)   The ribbon and pearle cotton are from my stash...the beads from my daughter's stash.  :)  Thanks again, girlie!  ;)  I used a MS border punch on the orange paper.  The flowers are Daisy Doodles from Prima (I got them at Michael's).  They come in great little glass jars that look wonderful on my shelf!  I used MS tinsel glitter and glitter glue on his hat.  The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink and is called Mixed Messages.  It is a great set with little sentiments.  And some that different from your standard everyday sentiments.  I'm so glad I bought this set!  They have a few other sets I would like to get!
The inside is pretty simple.  I used my Spellbinders Labels 4 to cut the oval.  I really wanted to use every last bit of that scrap of candle paper....and I did!!  The brads are from my stash.  They came from the clearance at Joanns quite a loooooong while back!  lol  I used a MS PATP for both panels.
The back is very boring .... plain white.... but there is my great personalized stamp and the MS punch again.
