It's a Monstah Bash!

We do the mashhhhhh...we do the monnnnnnster mash...the monster Bash! Now that song will be in your head for the rest of the day...sorry! Have you got your sunglasses ready? Cause this is a b-r-i-g-h-t card!
I think I'm trying to make up for the lack of sun here in New England the last few weeks...LOL! But seriously, this little Monstah Bash from Stamping Bella would look just as adorable in more muted colours but I really wanted to use my Lime Rickey patterned papers. The layout is the Weekend Sketch Challenge #85 hosted by Sharon Harnist. 



I started by stamping the Monstahs with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colouring them with copics. I stamped the balloon a second time and popped it for dimension. The image was cut out with circle Nestabilities and layered onto a red circle. I pierced around the edge for a little interest. 

The white card base is 5.25 inches square. I really seem to be into square cards lately! The yellow patterned paper is layered onto tempting turquoise and I stitched around the edges. The rest of the card was very quick. A couple of strips of the solid green and orange from the Lime Rickey line, stamped the happy birthday sentiment and added two burnt honey Bella Bonbons and a button from my stash.

I made some birthday invites with these guys, 15 of them for a friends birthday. But I got all fancy and cut them out on DP and stuck them on ...after like 5 of them I thought "what the hell was I thinking, paper peicing these guys", but I finished them and they turned out quite good! I should of taken a photo of it as these guys rock hey!
