Every time I look at this card, I just can't help grinning!  I just think it's sooo cute and fun!  I love these little monsters and can never decide which is my favorite.  I used two of them to create the background panel and a third for the focal panel.  There is at least one more in the set that I just couldn't fit in.  This card is for my brother-in-law, who is a BIG Ohio State fan, so I used the Ohio State school colors.  I don't know that he'll even notice, but I thought it was a good idea. : )

First - really like your take on that sketch!
Your card is absolutely delightful with it's very clean style and bright colors. My favorite part is your creation of the soft, faded out repetition of the focal image as a background - how creative! It's a perfect answer to not being able to find the right DP too!! Thank you for sharing your project and creativity with us at Aud Sentiments for our ATG challenge!
