BBTB2 Challenge - Reader's Choice - Mini Monograms

This week at BBTB2 the challenge is to use any number with any feature key from the Mini Monograms cartridge.  I found myself in the mood to create a Halloween card. That alone created quite a challenge for me, because at first I just could not think of a way to incorporate a number from the Mini Monogram cart with a Halloween theme... so ummm, eventually I ended up with "1 Scray Cat"... (I didn't say it was clever, I just said I ended up with it...)




It isn't exactly the most sophisticated of cards - but it did give me the opportunity to use my new Graphic 45 Halloween in Wonderland paper right along with my new Happy Hauntings Cricut cartridge, and of course the Mini Monogram cart as well (we can't forget that...as it is the challenge this week).  I also used Kraft, Zesty Orange, and True Black cardstock from Papertrey Ink. Also from Papertrey Ink is the Saddle Stitch ribbon in orange as well as the button twine. I added a bit of glossy accents on the bat tie (on the cat) and the monogram dots too... which actually ended up helping me to create a bit of a shiny mess in places on the card... I HATE when that happens! (grin).

Now it's your turn to create your happy mess, so hop on over to Bitten By the Bug 2 and get your craft on with this Mini Monogram challenge...or I'll have to send my scary cat after you!  muwahahaha.

LOL! I think it's pretty clever. I was trying to come up with a Halloween card myself and couldn't think of anything nearly as clever. I, too, love the paper!
