Beer Monster

Happy Saturday!
Wanted to stop in real quick and share a super cute card I made this week.  I decided to try something with one of my Memory Box frames...instead of using it as a frame, I tried using it as just the background accent.  I think it turned out pretty good :)
I made the card a little bigger, so it's an A4 (4 1/2 x 6 1/8) size instead of an A2.  That helped fit the frame a little bit better.

I colored up this awesome monster image from Pollycraft Designs called Beer Monster with my pencils.  His beer glass has been cut out a second time and popped up with some mounting tape so it sort of sticks out from the card.

I strung a little bit of twine through some of the bubbles and tied them up with a little button.  Then printed the sentiment from Create with TLC and made it into a tag to tuck under the button.

The outside of the frame has been lined with little white gel pen dots for added detailing.  I decorated the corners with some coordinating buttons.  They weren't planned, but after getting everything together, there was just too much empty space around the outside, so I figured the buttons would work out well.

The last thing I added was some white liquid pearls above the beer glass so they looked like bubbles, and under the sentiment.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

  2. That monster is so cute! It all works well together and your doodling and buttons top it off. The tag on the button is a great idea too. The monster has been beautifully coloured. Thanks for sharing with us at Crafting with Dragonflies for our male card/father's day challenge!
