Walkers Birthday Card

This is not the prettist card I've made, but none-the-less it was a very challenging card.  My son likes The Walking Dead TV Series, and I am a follower too, as strange as it may seem.  With this theme in mind I thought I would make a Birthday card for him.  Usually I reference cards in Pinterest to get ideas on where to start...well it didn't help me this time.  Assuming the Walkers are attracted to fire, I thought I could start out with 45 candles, and another to wish upon. 

Trivia:  Which set of cupcakes has 16 candles on it?  Top, Middle or Bottom.  

Front:  I used CTMH Stamp Sets S1412 Cutie Pie SOTM for the cupcakes and the candles were from Stamp Set D1529 Cricut Artiste Collection Birthday...layered the cupcakes and stamped on each candle and used several colors of my ShinHan Alcohol pens...lots of color and Wink of Stella and liquid glass on the candle flames.  I made the two sentiments "Put Out the Fire" warning and "45th" using Cricut Design Space typing and welding letters together, and cut on white cardstock.  The party hats were also from Design Space and modified to use as an embellishment. 

Inside:  When I entered a challenge in FantabulousCricutSketch, I got a Gift Certificate for Digiplayground, and I found a 6-piece Zombie SVG File.  Uploaded it to Design Space, resized the group and cut out several Black Zombies and also cut out several White Zombies which I made a fraction bigger.  Glued the Back on top of White so that The Walkers would show up against the black cardstock.  Again using Design Space typed and welded letters together for "The Walkers are here" and "Surprise" was a image in Design Space from CTMH cartridge.  Placed a Glitter Party Hat on each Walker, using the same hat cut for the front cover.  The "Happy Birthday" Sentiment was from CTMH Stamp Set C1350 Dainty Thoughts.  A party wouldn't be complete if there weren't balloons from Stamp Set M1037 Balloons Occasions.

Elaine, is this you? thanks for your compliments, appreciate it. Do you have an email? I am building up quite a bit of inventory of the challenges; and when I need a card I just go to my stash and finish the sentiments on the inside of the card. When Lisa gets in a craft show we are going to try to sell them.
