The party continues with this fabulous new release, and today I have a card to share with you using the SUPER cute new Party Monsters!  ACK!  This set is SO super cute, not to mention fun to color!   I had alot of fun creating my card for today!

I started by stamping the monster in Memento Tuxedo Black onto Choice Snow White Cardstock and colored him with Copic Markers.  I then cut out and layered the piece with circle dies.   I stamped the sentiment, "Happy Birthday Little Monster" (lol) onto a panel cut with the Fly Your Flag 2 Taylored Die.

Here is a closeup.  Isn't he so cute?

I used the awesome new Curly Border Taylored Die to add a fun border to the panels.  All of the patterned paper is Hootenanny from My Minds Eye and I used Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch, SSS172 for the layout.  All of the panels are popped up with Foam Tape for lots of dimension.

Here are the Copic Markers I've used on my card:

Here are the Taylored Dies I've used on my card:
