Monster Mash Birthday Card by Mischelle Smith
Another shaker card for Simon's Monday Challenge ... Inspired by Music. I LOVE these little monsters from Close To My Heart and they go perfect with the song ... Monster Mash ... too much fun!
Little Monsters and their Thin Cuts ... PERFECT!
This gorgeous layout is inspired by CTMH's Holiday Expressions ... LOVE it! I used texture stamps to 'kiss' my monsters after I inked them to create this fabulous texture on my Pear image.
The tops of the monsters are popped up to add dimension as they peek over the frame.
Small Googly Eyes would be cute on these monsters ... perhaps my next card?!
I LOVE the detail inside this shaker ... and the Tangerine Ink Blot really ties it all together.
Jeepers Creepers Washi Take, Stamp Set and Silver Shimmer Trim really dress this card up!  Using my paper trimmer ... I cut my Silver Shimmer Trim in half to lighten up the look a bit ... LOVE!  And silver sequin stars are just FUN!
For the inside of this card I took my cues from the front ... this is whimsical and fun ... perfect for celebrating a happy birthday!

That's a Wrap!
