Birthday Monster

So, I've had this argyle patterned piece in my bits and pieces stash for a really long time.  Kind of figured I would have a really hard time using it.  But a sketch came along that was absolutely perfect and I knew I had to play along.
This is a birthday card for a little guy at our church.  I think he'll love this little monster with his googly eyes; so fun!!  I colored the little monster to match the argyle piece and also colored the banner to make it match, too.

Supplies:
Stamps: YNS "Silly Monsters"; JustRite Stampers background builders
Dies: Verve "Pennant Trim"; MFT "Blueprints 13" stitched rectangle
