The Little Monster

Hello All!

For today I am playing along with Friday MashUp! I usually have all the best intentions of linking up with them but somehow it never seems to work out; until tonight!! Here is my card.. Enjoy!

All the ribbons is very colorful and playful!
Entering Challenge:
Friday MashUp!: Challenge FM231

I don't think I made a card this cute in awhile. So, when I saw this challenge I knew right away what I was going to do and it came together like a dream!! This was a great way to use up ribbon that was quite literally collecting dust.. I really don't use ribbon enough. Seriously, check out my board TheGrandStampede on Pinterest. Maybe I over did the ribbon theme on the card but I really don't mind because I just love it. 

I had to use hot glue to adhere all the ribbon together because remarkably glue don't really work. I was remembering my architectural days of building models and how painful but helpful this crafting material can be. It is also where I learned to really swear!!

I think my little creature reminds of Cousin It from the Addams Family. Cute in his own way and so funny but strange and a little bit freaky!!

Remember Cousin It!
I watched this show everyday after school.
This is when televisions were pieces of furniture and not picture frames. 
As you can probably guess this card is not exactly light. I didn't want a floppy affect when you opened it up. So I reinforced the back with heavy weight CS that compensated for the weight of the 'embellishment' monster on the front.
This little guy is so cute with all its color and googly eyes.
Tons of dimension just like the inspiration photo.
That should do it for me. I hope you have enjoyed your stay and I certainly do appreciate the time you have taken out of your busy day to visit.  If you are so inclined, please comment I do enjoy what you have to say.. Thank you again everyone and we will see you soon at TheGrandStampede.

All the best,
