Have a MONSTER birthday!

Hi there!

Before I show you my card today, I have some exciting challenge awards to share.

Firstly, this card won this weeks challenge over at A La Card Monkey. It was for the Girly-Girl Challenge. That means I get to be a guest designer again. Yay! I always so enjoy the challenge.

The second award is from a few weeks back, but with my lack of blogging lately I haven't posted it yet!
This card won top spool over at The Ribbon Carousel for the Anything Goes Challenge and it was also a Cut Above over at the Paper Players, also an Anything Goes Challenge. Thanks so much ladies for your votes!

Today's card is another Owl Punch card, but with a difference!

I have used the punch to make little monsters. I had to make a card for my nephew's 9th birthday, so I didn't want anything too babyish, but also not anything too grown up. I think this was a good compromise. I first saw these monsters made by Kathryn Lowe at Katlo Designs. So cute!

The clouds were made using the Cupcake punch. I have sprayed them with Shimmer Mist, but it is not easily seen in the photo. The background is one of the stamps from Grunge Rock, repeatedly stamped to look like a background stamp.

I also made a different monster on the inside, but forgot to take a photo of it. :(

Cardstock/ DSP: Marina Mist, Crumbcake, Elegant Eggplant, Pear Pizzazz, So Saffron, Whisper White, Basic Black
