A MoNstroSity of a card

It's hard to read but it says "Have a Monstrously Happy Birthday"

My nephew really isn't a monster, but if he was one of these monsters, I'd be ok with that. However, he is a  regular non-slimy, non-scaly,  non-spiky little boy. I'm not really sure if he likes Monsters. But what kid doesn't like the whole Monsters, Inc concept? I KNOW he has a great sense of humor and excellent taste so I'm not too worried.

I used my monster & ooey gooey svg files Plus a word saying from a muse of mine, Jamie Lane (her blog is Bits of Paper). On the inside of the card I used her graphic file Wish Big, I think it's perfect for this monstrosity. I used the graphic calendar, Monster Love, and Denim&bluejeans background graphic paper from Lettering Delights. Now to combine all of these I used MS Word, and imported these as pictures, and began the finagle of the objects. I'm learning, and I'm just loving what I'm learning!
All Monsters need google eyes!

On the areas where I wanted to highlight I used Inkessentials Glossy Accents from Ranger inks. I was still angry at my Crystal lacquer, so it's on a time out on my desk. This works just as well but doesn't clog up in the nozzle as easily.

I'm sure you'll agree- goo and monsters aren't just for Halloween anymore!
