WALL-E Birthday

I could not sleep, usually happens when I'm on vacation, so I made good use of it and got started on my next card...I got a bit carried away and just kept working until I finished.

A long time ago I saw a really cool card base created on My Creative Time by Emma Aguilar.  Here is her video.  Take a look,  I got lots of good ideas from it.  

I had been dying to make a card base like hers.  As you can see, it worked!  It was lots of work though because my Gypsy is not cutting right so I had to do extra trimming to fix it.  

For the longest time I had wanted to use this WALL-E image, but couldn't think of what to do with him. stamp set from Pink By Design arrived and on it I saw this sentiment that said "Today, i eat cake" It was perfect!  

The idea was that since WALL-E is a robot, he doesn't get to eat anything tasty like this.  But today he is getting his chance:) Yay for him! I can almost imagine his little robot voice saying "yum, yum."

I'm entering this card into the Birthday Sundaes challenge #16.  Hope you guys like it!

So here is WALL-E enjoying his cake.  

I love how it looks like he is thinking the sentiment! Totally not on purpose, but it works!

He longingly looks at his cake here...

I popped him up with pop dots.  You can see that a bit better at this angle. 

Sorry if I'm rambling...I am a bit sleepy now.
