Monster Birthday!

Click here for this week's FCCB challenge post!

I'm busy making cards with the fun Valentine swap set I received from Liz through the FCCB blog. What a fun way to connect with our DT sisters! Liz stamped this cute monster and the sentiment inside from a Jaded Blossoms set for me

I decided to follow along with this week's Sweet Sunday sketch from The Sweetest Thing.

As well, over at Scrapbookers Paradise they are having a challenge to use 5 of Linda's favorite things! 

From her list I chose:
1- die cut (behind the doily)
2- doily (die cut)
3- brad (heart in the wood veneer embellishment)
4- eyelets (green in the spots of the monster)
5- small adornment (wood veneer arrow)
6- button (lizard)
7- ribbon (green floral rickrack)

I coloured this cute guy with Prismacolor markers and coloured pencils. 

I popped up the monster image with foam dots and then glued the front feet of the lizard onto the top. I couldn't remove the button shank, but it still sat nicely because of the height of the popped up image.

I placed the heart brad through the wood veneer hole, the banner, and the image. I used a Distress marker to colour the wood and it worked well.


Thanks for joining me today! I feel like I'm finally back in the groove after the hustle of Christmas and 4 birthdays!
