Monster Birthday!

I'm currently busy preparing for the new term ahead...and arranging music for my classes and ensembles to play...but had a little break from the computer to make a quick card. I've used a fun digi image by Hambo Stamps...called 'Monster Sax'...and papers from a Hallow'een collection by My Mind's Eye called 'Boo to You!'. I've kept it really simple, as it's a guy's card...just distressed all of the edges with inks, and added a couple of sentiments from a little Studio G set.

Of course there are some challenges:
Just a little 'heads up''s my second blogoversary tomorrow...and I'll be back with some candy tomorrow to celebrate...

Helen what a fun and fabulous card. Your coloring skills are impeccable. You have chosen such pretty paper to bring this alive to bring cheer and a celebratory feeling to the card. Great job with the sketch. Thank you so much for playing along with the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge.

Bear Hugs,
