FCCB Challenge 200 - Pick A Holiday

 Happy Monday and welcome to another Monday challenge!

Challenge #200: Pick a Holiday

This Weeks Sponsor

$10.00 Gift Certificate
To qualify for the prize, be sure to use at least 1 Cricut cut on your project and if it's not obvious, let us know what cartridge you used.

Here's my project:

For my holiday I chose Birthday! Technically it's not a holiday, but everyone really should have a holiday on their birthday :).

I cut this cute monster from the Mini Monster Cricut cartridge.  I was designing it as a 'boy' card, so I kept the colours fairly primary. The balloons are stamped from the stamp set which came with the January 2014 Simon Says Stamp card kit.  The strings and little ties are from the same set. I used a white gel pen to highlight the balloons and the sentiment is a rub-on (happy) and a CTMH stamp (birthday).

The monster is popped up over the balloon strings, and I added a little shading with Distress Ink around his edges.

I used some K & Company paper for the background and a 6x6 Little Yellow Bicycle paper pad for the monster and red plaid.

Happy Crafting!
