Have a Monster of a Birthday

Hi again, another day just about finished here in Adelaide. I had a fairly quiet day today. I popped out for about an hour with a friend to the shops and bought a few groceries and had a coffee. The weather today was very overcast so I didn't attempt to diminish the mound of washing as I didn't think it would dry. In the end the rain held off and I could probably have done it. Very frustrating!!!
Our youngest son had the day off today and went to our daughter's to do some work on the car he bought last year. She is buying it from him and he was doing some repairs to get it up to scratch. They called in here for about 20 mins and then headed out to buy something else for the car and for him to drop her back home. A quiet night at home, watched "The Voice" and CSI before sitting down to make a card,
Here is the finished card.
I used SU Wisteria Wonder for the base and made it into a gatefold card. I embossed a layer of SU Pear Pizazz with hearts for the inside and also two panels for the front. I also cut a nestie shape in the Pear Pizazz and traced around the template to create a matte in the Wisteria Wonder. I stamped the sentiment and the little "XXX" in SU Basic Black Ink . On the inside I adhered the embossed layer and then another nestie diecut in Wisteria Wonder. I stamped the image onto white card and coloured with Copic Markers and then cut it out and adhered to the nestie diecut. I added another sentiment again in the Black ink. All the stamps come from "Lil Monster"s Balloon" set from AnnaBelle Stamps..
Sorry again - the green has not scanned true to colour. it is more like the green showing on the scan of the inside of the card. I really don't understand why it doesn't scan properly especially when it varies from scan to scan on the same machine!!!!
I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
Crafty Cardmakers - Challenge 68 ~ Birthday Balloon Bonanza (must have some sort of balloon)
