Monstrously Old!

I decided to use this week’s OCC Sketch as a basis for John’s birthday card.  His birthday was yesterday and we celebrated with some yummy German Chocolate cake.  Mmm..

Anyway, back to the card.  I used one of my favorite Chicken Girl Designs clear sets, Silly Monsters.  Remember, now that Chicken Girl has gone digi the clear sets are only available until inventory is depleted so hurry up!  I stamped the little monster in Palette Charcoal and colored them in with my Prisma pencils.  I put some Glossy Accents on it to make them pop.  The greeting is Palette Jardin Moss.  The designer papers are from Green at Heart and Kioshi.  I used my new (LOVING THESE!) Classic Scalloped Petite Borderabilities for the scalloped edge (duh) and some black burlap twine (wrapped it around 3 times).  The final touch was one of IHP’s EXCLUSIVE polymer buttons, from the Happy Day set.

Thanks for popping in today!  Have a great week!
