Monster of a Xmas

A few cards to post here today, I have been making but not posting! I made this bright funky christmas card following the sketch from AnnaBelle Stamps blog and was inspired by the theme over at Designed 2 Delight - xmas card for a child.
The other week I ordered this neat little monster stamp from AnnaBelle stamps and I am absolutely loving it - it is so versatile you can use it for masculine cards or kids cards and I see no reason why you can't make a quirky female card using it! So for this card I have a santa hat stamp that I used (covered up the crown the monster wears) and have manipulated the title by inking only certain words so that the title fits in the balloon.

materials - Bazzill white card, red carstock; Echo Park 'everybody loves christmas' papers; Stazon jet black ink; AnnaBelle Stamps 'Lil monster's balloon', Ferngully Stamps 'santa hat' stamp; Marvy pens - blender 0, pale orange 16, dark brown 18, citrus yellow 69; Echo Park 'everybody loves christmas' element stickers; Kaisercraft light blue rhinestones.

Thanks for looking.
