Congratulations Card using Stampotique

Lately so many friends and family members have had reasons to celebrate big milestones in life.  I like to try to come up with cards that reflect the personality of the person I'm making the card for.  This one goes to a dear friend with tons of energy!  Does it show?
I used the image "Twinkie" by Stampotique.  I stamped the image twice, once using Ranger's Archival Coffee colored ink and the second time I used Memento's Espresso Truffle ink.  After trimming out the image I cut each of them in half and exchanged their pants.  I glued the boys to the blank white card.  I stamped the phrase at the upper right corner also in the Coffee color.  For the bottom border I cut a strip of paper and trimmed it to fit the card.  Using just the head of Dina Wakley's "Silhouette Script" girl, I stamped it right side up then upside down.  I used same colors of ink on the border.  The edges are also inked with Ranger's Coffee ink, I really love that color!  I think I love anything with the word "coffee" in it.  Sigh.
