I {heart} Funky Monsters!

This is my entry for this week's challenge over at Cupcake Craft Challenges. Our theme this week is Monsters! I don't own a single monster stamp (that's changing soon!) so I had to ask some of my fellow PMS DT members to send me some cute images! This cute little monster is one of those images! This is Argus with his teddy. Isn't he just so cute? I colored him using my BIC and Prismacolor markers (darn stroke lines!) and matched his limey green to my patterned paper. I opted to compliment his bumps with some polka dot paper. It's a sheet from my new "Back to Basics" paper pad by the Paper Studio. The layout for this card is just using the last PMS sketch from last week's challenge (PMSSC3). The sentiment is from a Stampin' Up sentiment set "Smarty Pants." I don't own the set, but when I dug through my sentiment "images" I've been given my friends that the sentiment just worked perfectly! I finished the card with three white brads and then I added Stickles (using Lime) to them, and the sentiment.

Super cute huh? Yep, this little monster is definitely going on my wish list!
