Monster Birthday Card

Sneaking in under the wire to get my four sketches posted for the June challenge at the Viva La Verve Sketch Challenge!  Here is the  original sketch from week four.  I decided to flip the sketch for my Monster Birthday Card.

My card is completed with the Hooligans paper packet and Monster Mash Embellishments.  Neither of these items are in the current catalog, but they are listed in the While Supplies Last section of my website.  The papers and embellishments would be great for Halloween cards and scrapbook pages.

All supplies by Close To My Heart, except where noted:

C1494 Card Word Puzzle
D1283 Say It in Style
D1475 Card Chatter-Birthday
X7129B Hooligans Paper Packet
Z1332 Monster Mash
