YNS Challenge #23 - Spooktacular

Busy morning so far, but before the real busy time starts I wanted to get this post up.  There is another challenge going on at Your Next Stamp, Challenge #23, and I wanted to enter another card. This is a fun way for me to use one of my favorite stamp sets---Silly Monsters.  I just love these guys---they never fail to make me smile.


I decided to participate in the sketch challenge.  Here is the inspiration and below is my take on it. I had fun making this one, let me know what you think.

I started by stamping and heat embossing the image. I then colored it with copic markers.  I stamped several sentiments on the white card stock. I've been wanting to do this technique and I thought this would be the perfect opportunity!  I then clear embossed the candies on the green card stock and put everything together. Lastly I popped up the monster on foam!

All in all a fun card to make!
