Make a Monster Mash

Today's card is inspired by one I saw on the gorgeous blog by Teneale Williams, an SU demonstrator in Australia. Her cards are always lovely but this one really caught my eye. I liked it so much, I decided to copy it pretty close and this is what I came up with...
And a shot from the side:
When I saw hers, I loved the color combo and the sketch as well as the adorable focal point image. I was lucky enough to have just purchased this set recently so I pulled it out and gave it my best shot. The cute little creature is from the set called Make a Monster. I accented him/her with a little Pear Pizazz Designer (Polka Dot) DSP which is part of the In Colors Designer Patterns Assortment. The marina Mist strip across the middle was embossed with my Square lattice embossing folder and then trimmed with a strip of Whisper White CS which I punched with my Pinking Hearts border punch.

I stamped a couple balloons from the Crazy for Cupcakes set onto Marina Mist and cut them out so I could pop them up on Dimensionals. If you don't like to fussy cut, you could always stamp them directly onto the white and color them with markers too. I added a little white 3/8" Taffeta ribbon and a sentiment from the So Happy for You set featured in the SAB catalog right now. You can earn this set for FREE with any $50 purchase from now until March 31st.

I am off to my day. Have a great one!
