Challenge #21 at Little Miss Muffet Stamps - Clouds

Good morning all!  It's time for a new challenge at Little Miss Muffet stamps and this week we have a doozie for you!  It's to use Clouds on your creation!   The DT girls have done a fabulous job with their creations this week, so do head on over to the Challenge blog for a looksee.  If you are wondering how to make a cloudy background, we have linked to three helpful tutorials on the challenge post using three different mediums.  If you haven't tried it before, there's no time like the present!

I decided to pull out one of my old favourites for this challenge... Monster Bubbles...

The papers are from October Afternoon, My Mind's Eye and Webster's Pages and the diecut clouds are made using my Slice Elite machine.  The background clouds are done using Amy's Distress Ink method.  I have added googly eyes to Monster Bubbles and Glossy Accents to his bubble.  The sentiment is from Pollycraft.  Other than that, I have kept it pretty simple!

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
More than Favours Wacky Wednesday #57: Anything Goes
Scrapbook Sisters Card Challenge #58: Anything Goes
Simon Says Stamp: Anything Goes
Scrap Creations: Doing it Digi
Party Time Tuesdays #39: Anything Goes

Here are the copics I used:

Have a lovely day!  Today is the start of a long weekend here in Greece... unfortunately the weather is not looking so good, so I am cooking for a dinner party at the boss's house tonight instead of them coming to the boat.  They are probably going to come out on the boat later in the weekend.  

Want to know what's on the menu?
Nibbles: Grilled goat's cheese crostini with red onion relish and bang bang chicken filo tart cups
Starter:  Prawn, cashew and lemon risotto served with a rocket salad
