Monster Birthday Card

Today I'm sharing a fun card I made to enter into the following ongoing challenges:

Here's the card I made:
I used a High Hopes stamp ("Monty") on my card. I colored in the monster using Promarkers, and cut him out. I molded the cut out monster to make him look more 3-dimesional and also to make him look more like he's coming out of the card towards the viewer (this is how I took the Simon Says Challenge of movement on the card =) . I added some black lines to the blue piece of cardstock, and matted it onto some red cardstock. I then added the monster to the blue piece using foam adhesive, which I only put on the backside of his main body and his one foot. His arms and his other foot I had bent further out, so I didn't want to add any adhesive there. I stamped the sentiment, which is from a Norwegian stamp set, onto the same color blue cardstock and matted that as well with the red cardstock. I used some green cardstock for the cardbase, and some grey cardstock for the layer. I stamped the Cling Dots stamp from Hero Arts using Versamark onto the grey piece of paper. All of the papers (except for the monster) were distressed with distress ink, using a sponge. The grey layer was distressed with Versamark.
Thanks for stopping by today!
