Storybook Birthday - Attack of the Aliens

Our Hero!

cute little aliens

Here is  a card I created that has been rambling around in my head for awhile. It uses the Storybook DSP which I love.  I wanted the super hero to bust out of the paper to save the card from the little aliens. Aren't they cute?! The Storybook DSP comes in 12 x 12 sheets and has fantastic artwork that you can color. My biggest challenge was how to use this paper for a smaller card. I decided to focus on smaller images that I could cut out and use to set up the card. 

I have another Storybook card rambling around in my brain but have to focus on our school auction for the remainder of the week so check back on Sunday or Monday for the next "chapter".  

Paper - Storybook DSP, night of navy, old olive, pumpkin pie card stock
Ink - old olive, pacific point, real red, crushed curry, pumpkin pie, blush blossom
Stamps - Vintage Labels ( sentiment)
Accessories - Square lattice embossing folder, pumpkin pie brads, dimensionals
