Please Feed The Monster!

Hey everyone! Finally a Halloween card! Okay, this is really my second one, but I'm starting to get in the mood because there are so many CUTE ones out there! This is the same stamp set from Our Craft Lounge that I received when I attended a class at my LSS. Unfortunately, this particular set appears to only be available to class participants, but there's a similar one available called Sweet Tooth Terrors. Too cute!

My card is in answer to The Diedrich Dare Week 2 Challenge. I'm not sure I've ever made a round card before. I finally decided to treat it as the background on which my little card is mounted. The first picture shows the card closed, and the second shows the card open... with the little monster waiting with his candy bag to be "fed." I used Orange and Purple Sparkly Fluff on the little guy after coloring him with my Copic markers. I love that stuff! It really sparkles.

It's just a quick post today as it's a case of "so much to do, so little time." I'll be back tomorrow with some exciting news and more goodness from La-La Land Crafts, so stay tuned!

Have a wonderful day!

Edited to add: After seeing this post, my BBFF Patti clued me into this cool blog called Haunted Design House. It just so happens that my card meets the Macabre Monday #006 Challenge to use only the colors black, white, orange, chartreuse green and purple, so I'm entering it there, too!

Another super cute card Lisa! I've made a round card before and it rolled right off the table! LOL! Ya know, when I first saw your picture and read the sentiment I thought "OH! You decorated one of those popcorn shaker dealies!" But there's no metal handle, so nope, not one of those! But that would be a cute gift idea HUH?! LOL. Love your card, none-the-less! I'm not a halloween girl at all, but have to admit, this li'l monster is tooo CUTE!! Great DPs too! xx

I haven't ventured into Halloween cards yet, Lisa, but you sure are inspiring me! I can't get over how absolutely adorable this is. I love the round shape of it, and how you did up the monster and that perfect greeting. So FUN!
