I finally finished the card I started a week ago for the Forgotten Scraps challenge to use one of their lovely freebie images on a card.  I chose the Monster Love image and put googly eyes on him as I'm not really into Valentine themed cards.  I think that neither my husband nor myself could be called romantic that way.  This is going to be a birthday card for a little boy.

Isn't he cute?  I have added glossy accents to his horns and his toenails and a little bit of bling to the flower and the top right background piece.

The papers are a mixture of Cosmo Cricket, October afternoon and one other.  I hand sewed around the edges with embroidery thread using a blanket stitch.

The monster was coloured with copics (I think mainly YR01, 03 and 06 for greens, plus W1 and BV000, 01 and 02 for purples.  The reds are R22, 24 and 29).

The ribbon is from The Ribbon Girl.

In other monster news, I just received some Christmas goodies in the mail yesterday from the UK Chickies and among other things I got a cool Monster Plushie book!

Image from Amazon.  Hmmm I don't know about the immature adults thing... but maybe they are right.  I'm looking forward to making some cool monsters with this!  Thanks UK Chickies!
