What does a Pikachu say?  Pika! or Happy Birthday!

There are a couple of family birthdays this week, 
so with this in mind I thought I would do something different.
The only thing that is stamped is the word 'Pika!', everything else is die cut.
[Gosh, what was I thinking?  LOL!]

After a couple of false starts with the Pikachu, I cut him on white card and hand coloured him with pencils.  He probably should be a deeper yellow however, colouring on a pre-cut shape isn't as easy as colouring between stamped lines.

The white background was die cut, with a piece of leftover card that was pre-inked popped in behind.  The clouds were die cut, and coloured with a bit of  'pumice stone' Distress Ink and edged in 'broken china'. 
'Pika!' was stamped onto a cut off piece from the background and popped onto foam dots.
Pikachu was also popped onto foam dots, his little arms onto doubled foam dots for dimension, and given googly eyes [although I'm not sure Pikachu has any white on his eyes - hmmmm].

The finished front was adhered to folded black card, and a white insert was added to finish it off.

The recipient of this card seemed quite happy with my Pokemon attempt - phew!
