A little monster.....

Morning! Finally got some piccies of my card so i can share it with you all :-)
This is for another of George's school friends - I think I'm going to be making quite a few 5th birthday cards this year! The image is Monster Boy from squiggle stamps and is coloured with my promarkers. The spotty paper was one of my scraps so I'm not sure of the make but I think it might be Daisy and Dandelion Picnic Patch??? The gingham paper is from crafts too.


It seems to be standard these days that I put quickutz cookie cutter stars on boys cards - I never seem to be able to do buttons quite right! The "Boy" embellishment on the tag and the cute tiny buttons at the bottom were won from Debs - thankyou! The birthday stamp on the tag is one of papermania's but the sentiment on the base was computer generated.


I've inked all the edges in various shades of green and blue and then added some ribbon from my stash.
