Keeping With The Bright

This is another card for a nephew. It must've been about a year ago now that I saw these four Sesame St characters made out of the scallop circle punch and thought "well I know what I'm doing for Rory's birthday card next year!", though I didn't think it would take me this long to get around to doing it for the first time! Each character has a scallop circle head, 1/2" circle eyes and 3/16" circle pupils and then various other punched shapes - some trimmed - to complete their look. Even though the colours aren't an exact match, my gathered supplies for the characters reminded me of this paper from the Good Morning Sunshine pack, and it worked well for the underneath layer.
