The Challenge #44

The challenge at The Challenge is a birthday card with this photo inspiration:


Birthday cards are easy.  Finding a monster among my stamps impossible.  So, thinking outside the box, I went through some of my dies and came up with this.


Can you guess what I used?  I cut it from foil, did some surgery on it and added glitter circles for the eyes and an I from an alphabet set for the mouth.  A LF speech bubble border contains a PTI 'happy' cut from glitter paper and inset, and a stamped sentiment from CB.  I originally cut my monster from blue but couldn't find a background paper I liked.  I'll keep looking and make a second card, just because I like it so much and can use some children's birthday cards.

Thanks for dropping by.  Oh, did you want to know what I used for the monster?  My owl die from the PS Hooties set.

  1. Tee hee ... I laughed out loud at your little monster, Bobby ... he's so fun ... and you're so creative! I was thinking maybe you used an ice cream die (from the top of a cone) ... would never have guessed it was an owl!! Whatever you used, though, it's brilliant! Hugs, Anita :)
