Alien Birthday

What a busy weekend we had at our home! Tonight is the first time I have made it to the studio for more than a few minutes. I just couldn't go to bed without making a card. Plus I had to play with this fun Alien image from the Digi Shack. Check out the blog starting Monday morning for "Manic Monday Freebie Fun" where you can get this Alien image for free.

I also made this card for the SCS Featured Stamper; minnidr was chosen this week. Her gallery is filled with great cards. I chose her "birthday two" card to case. I wanted to use some of the new SU! incolors and found this DSP in my stash that coordinated well enough. I kept the layout, the brads, dsp on top and cs on the bottom. I changed the dsp, the colors, the image, the sentiment, and the border.


"Happy Birthday, Earthling!" on the front and the inside reads: "Hope your birthday is out of this world." The sentiments and inside were generated on the computer using a font called Neuropol and I printed in brown.
I know a few people who will get a kick out of this card; and I think it is gender neutral, do you agree?

Have a great week, Friends!
