Furry man for b-day

Hi everybody! Before I share my card I'd like to apologise for being such a bad blog buddy. Last week was so exhausting, I was too tired to leave some love to your blogs. Hopefully I get my writing mood back this week. But now it's time for monster mash. We have cool challenge at Paper Makeup Stamps this week. We want to see monster(s) on your project. You have to use a digi image on it.

Because scary cards are not my thing I decided to use a cute monster. There's lots of them in PMS shop :) I colored up Duncan. He's so adorable:)

Sent: "Sweet Birthday"

Background paper is made by me and so are sentiments in front and inside. This lovely blue and white braid is made by my mom. She loves to make them right now and I asked one for my card. It's actually made specially for this one :) I thought it would be lovely touch to it, just to give more soft and warm feeling to this kind cookie monster. And if you use your imagination, you see white hearts on it :)

Duncan is colored with ProMarkers and I added some Glossy Accents to his eyes and cookies. The heart frame with crown is colored Letraset Metallic marker. It looks really cool on real life. Frame and Duncan are popped up with foam tape. I added some glitter dots to frame and covered them with Glossy accents too. All those matting layers and butterflies are colored with ProMarker - Cyan. On the largest butterfly I made some pattern with Blender pen, white gel pen and glitter pen and added one gem to its body.

Inside of the card is very simple. Although the card is blue and you may think it is a male card, it isn't. I would love to get a blue card :o) The poem inside says it's for a woman. It's funny poem and goes perfectly with Duncan (or maybe it's funny only for me) It says something like this:
"Luck, health, guys
tall, hairy and great
I wish you from my side!
But you have to make it happen!"

This is it for today. Don't forget to visit my team mates from PMS and our this week guest designer Olivia from You have one week to participate in challenge.
