Who's at the door?!

Don't you just love when your project turns out just how you imagined it?! Sometime within the last year I saw an adorable card at a bookstore that had a monster peaking out a top window. I didn't buy the card but tucked away the idea hoping to create my own version. Here it is. The Mojo Monday sketch #109 this week got me thinking together with this recent Halloween decorating idea from that landed in my Inbox this week--a feather boa wreath with googly eyes.

I created my monster in the window in Adobe Illustrator, printed on Gina K pure luxury cardstock and coloured with copics after cutting the image piece with my largest Large Labels nestie. I created a wreath form with black cardstock and circle nesties and wrapped these two fibres I've been hoarding around the form. The googly eyes are adhered to the wreath with Aleene's Jewel-It embellishing glue.

To include the Dry Embossing challenge (TSG25) over at There She Goes as well, I embossed the bottom purple panel using my cuttlebug Forest Branches folder. As with most of my cards these days, I finished it all off with stitching.

~Thanks for looking. Let me know that you did!
