Have a Monstrous Birthday - MFT Color Challenge #54

September 22, 2016

It's been a while since I played along with a MFT color challenge last time. I always think that I should participate in at least one color challenge every month. But, well... I'm not so good at color challenges. :(

This weeks color palette looked easy to tackle, since these are traditional colors for Halloween. I started with an idea to make a Halloween themed card using the Monster Love stamp set, then changed my mind and came up with this birthday card.

I die cut a Smooth White panel using the Blueprints 21 Die-namics and added the stitching lines with the Stitched Strip Die-namics.  After I stamped the sentiment in Black Licorice, I matted the panel with a Boysenberry panel and adhered to a Gumdrop Green card base. 

I stamped the monster with Gumdrop Green Premium Dye ink and cut it out with the matching die.  It was adhered to the Smooth White panel along with a half circle panel, which I cut from Boysenberry CS using the Blueprints 21 Die-namics. 

The balloons were cut from polka dot patterned papers using the Birthday Balloons Die-namics. I drew the strings with a black gel pen and added a bow. The tiny stars were cut out with a die from the Stitched Strip Die-namics.

Head on over to the MFT Challenge & Inspiration blog for the challenge details and for more inspiration from the DT.

Thank you for stopping by!


  1. What a fun, happy card this is. It made me laugh when I saw it. I think any "kid" would love getting this! I like the blue behind the monster and the stars you added so that the monster is not lost on the card. Too cute!

  2. This little monster is adorable. Also love the little stars in the background!!
