A new month has arrived and that means a new challenge from the Love To Scrap Challenge Blog.  This month's challenge is Anything Goes.

And here is the card I created:
I made a fun shaker card using an adorable little monster from YNS.  The hat does not belong to him and I had to do quite a bit of masking and fiddling to get it to fit, but now, it looks like it DOES belong on him.  Only, I couldn't make the masking work and I ended up stamping them separately, adding the hat to the monster and adding the eyes on top of the hat.  I used a bunch of different elements to create the sentiment, "Christmas Joy from our house to yours".  I filled the shaker elements with some chunky white glitter.
Here's a close up of the little monster; I used glossy accents on the eyes to make them nice and shiny!
And another Christmas card down, I might actually get enough made to send out this year!

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Head on over to the LTSCB blog to see what the rest of the team has created and to get the full details of the challenge.  Then get inky and play along with us; I can't wait to see what you create.
