Personalized Superhero Water Closet pun

I was brainstorming ideas of how to use the "Restroom" symbol from Viva Las VegaStamps' Plate #917, and I remembered the funny joke (right) about the female symbol looking like it's wearing a cape. And then it hit me... it's Superman and Wonder Woman! I figured a million people had thought of this already, but if they had I didn't see it on Google... so do let me know if you've seen this before. There is nothing new under the sun, but occasionally you hit on something that people have, well, not seen recently.

I came up with this some months ago, but I never did make a card of it. However, the other day I saw on FaceBook that an uber-talented H.S. friend (aka MyRandomActs) designed the most amazing superhero-themed logos & invitations for her kids' joint birthday party. I wanted to make them a fun card, so I used this idea of mine to make this card with a pun on their surname, Culpepper:



Each color on the superheros, except the black base, was stamped separately and paper-pieced. The chipboard frame, metal letters, ribbons, metal frame, and star brads are from my stash (meaning, Mom sent them to me!). I made the cloudy background by inking the embossing folder before running it through my BigShot.

I'm entering this card into the following Challenges:
Crafting Musketeers #4: Sketch
