That's a' Pasta Dinner

I love to cook and have an Italian background.  Now my Mom comes to spend the winter with us and we love to be in the kitchen together.   Well Saturday is my son-in-laws birthday and we are making him an Italian dinner.
So we put together an "Italian dinner card".  The card is 5 x 7 so I cut the table from A Child's Year at 3 3/4 inches.  This table had a person standing on one side and another sitting on the other side.  I did not want the people at the table so using Design Studio I moved the table as far to the upper left hand corner as I could so that the person standing would not cut out.  Then I took a square and placed it over the sitting person and welded it, that way the sitting person was inside the square and did not cut.  I cut it twice from plain white cardstock and I colored the legs with ink to make them look like wood.   I turned the table over and outlined the "table cloth" area from a checked piece of paper from DCWV Farmers stack cut it out and glued it on the front.  The two layers are pop dotted on the card, well one layer was glued directly onto the card and the other was pop dotted on top.  The background paper is from DCWV Green stack, I thought it looked like wallpaper with the brown on the bottom being the floor.

The plate of pasta(noodles as we called them growing up, pasta is a new thing LOL) and the glass of wine are epoxy stickers from K & Company.  The happy birthday is cut from Create a Critter out of glitter red & green paper to match the Italian flag and I added a small red star to dot the "i".
Here is the inside, I thought the saying was appropriate for the card.

Now the little doggie, isn't he the cutest little thing?  He was cut at 1 1/4 inches from Create a Critter.  His face is a golden pearl like paper, I covered the body with Stampendous Fun Flock.  I added the gogglie eyes and a brown pearl nose.  He is so furry and cute!  The reason that I put this dog at the bottom of the table is because my daughter & son-in-law have two Yorkies. 
Thanks for stopping by and I would love to read your comments.
