Star Monster...

There's nothing more toxic or deadly than a human child. A single touch could kill you. Leave a door open, and one can walk right into this factory; right into the monster world. -Henry Waternoose (Monsters, Inc)I love a good sketch challenge, and Waltzing Mouse has a super fun one going...it is Star shaped! I don't have Star dies and thought about going with an A2 card with a star on it...but then I saw one of my son's Glow in the Dark stars that had come off his bedroom ceiling and I thought, why not?

I did tweak the sketch a Bit and moved the image to the side of the star and the button up away from the image, but I think it still works. I used my new Anita Be Stampin Monster Hugs set, after seeing this cute set on the Etsy Inspired Challenge shop, Claylicious. The colors are from this week's Off the Wall Craftiness Challenge.

Paper: Main Street, Hometown Collection (October Afternoon,) Ladybug Ball Twitterpated Collection (Imaginisce,) Textured Card (DCWV)
