Monster hugs from all of us.

This is my second card featuring our 'Sparkle' 
(our first (of three) 300th Challenge Celebration challenges) challenge over at 
Cupcake Inspirations!! 

I hope you'll come over and join us. 

The cupcake inspiration is SPARKLE!!
You can go straight to the challenge HERE

We are sponsored this week by so many wonderful sponsors!!!

I used Bugaboo's Love Monster digital image. Makes me so happy. I colored them up with my Prismacolor pencils. I used my Shapeabilities heart dies to create a framed window in my card front. I covered it in Christmas Red Stickles to create my Sparkkle. 

The sentiment is from a Your Next Stamp set called Silly Monsters. I inked it up in Versafine Black Onyx ink. 

On the inside, I used another sentiment from the YNS set. 

I just love using the window method to create more layers in the card without adding a lot of paper to the front, know what I mean? It's depth without becoming bulky. :) More views...

I made this card from my Grandmother's birthday on Thursday! She's going to love it and we are all accounted for in the image. :) 

Thanks for looking! I hope this finds you happy and healthy!
