I'm here with this week's Create with Connie and Mary Challenge. This week we had a color challenge...
The Colors for this Challenge are Cherry Cobbler, Island Indigo, and Crumb Cake. At first I was thinking of going the Father's Day route with this color combo but then I decided it was perfect for a Monster Birthday!
I used my favorite new Hostess Exclusive greeting set again on this card Wacky Wishes. This time I stamped the greeting one on the Whisper White card stock and once on Crumb Cake. Then I used the Bitty Banners Framelits die to cut out just the Happy part of the greeting and poped the banner up over the original greeting. I think it adds a lot of fun to the card.
Since this was a Monster Birthday card I used Build a Monster to add some interest to the squares and one Big Monster to finish the card off. I'm in LOVE with the Danger Crafts Monsters that Rebecca does - I especially like when she does stripes on the legs and arms so I used that as inspiration for coloring. I think it needs a little more work to come out just the way I see it in my head but I still think he's a super cute monster!!
