Greetings from out of space.....

Hello everyone: I have a kid birthday card to share with you today, I saw the other day that my stash of birthday cards for children was a bit low, only 3 cards in there so, I decided to make this one which I will submit to the Alphabet Challenge with a new theme "D is for Dots", here is my card.

How about those creatures form out of space, eh? aren't they so darn cute? this sweeties are from a retired SU set called "Make a Monster" from the 2010-2011 catalog, I love this set for kids cards. I only have one other set with Monsters, I made THIS card with the "Monstermaniacs" set, so totally adorable.
I stamped this little monsters onto a piece of Strathmore Mixed Media 90lb. paper because it's a bit thinner than my usual Canson 140lb. water color paper and I was going to fussy cut this guys, this paper is great, it holds the water well and it's a snap to snip.
I added a "Moon" that was embossed with a Paper Studio embossing folder, I glued some confetti stars and added the "Happy Birthday Human" sentiment from another sweet SU set called "Lots of Bots", this are little Robots.
Here is a picture of the finished inside of my card.

All of the sentiments are from a retired Flourishes set called "Pinwheels and Popsicles", I added another little monster using a different set of "accessories", this is the great thing about this set, it has a bunch of really cute eyes, mouths, horns and dots to make a bunch of different monsters.
