Cute Monster Card

I really splurged with all those recent sales going on lately and treated myself among some other purchases to some new stamps from Your Next Stamp. They have some really cute stamp sets and I had to have their Monster birthday set.....and it arrived just in time to get a card in for their current challenge. I went with the sketch (see below), but there is also a color challenge. I just could not see myself making a monster in pink, powder blue, grey and green..... besides that I need yet another birthday card for a little boy.


I colored that cute little monster with pencils, fuzzy cut it and adhered it with foam tape. Her is another view of this card. The background paper is rainbow paper from Germany. Sadly you can't buy this in the US. 




I am also linking my card with Seize the Birthday - Anything Birthday
and with Simon Says Wednesday challenge - something new (brand new stamp set)
