Monster birthday-shabby tea room challenge week #151: cute as a button

Hello! I'm back after having the flu and have missed making cards! I hope you managed to avoid the nasty bug. Roll on summer!

Anyway on to brighter things I now have somewhere to craft woohoo! My boyfriend has sorted out the loft for me, so I'm very grateful that I now have a place to get creative!

I Have made this card for this weeks shabby tea room challenge "cute as a button". You had to use the colours green, blue, white and red and of course some buttons. I thought I would do a boys card this week as its a bit different and I fancied a change from pretty flowers.

Hello shabby friends and welcome to another fun week of inspiration and creativity here in the Tea Room!  This week I am our creative host and I have chosen the theme of 'Cute as a Button' along with this beautiful photo for inspiration and I ask that you create a card or project inspired by the COLORS IN THE PHOTO AND INCLUDE BUTTONS!

If you want to take part at the tea room or just look at beautiful cards from the design team head over: here

To make this card I used:

White card blank
White card front
Green thread
Speech bubble die
Red ink
Monster from designs by dani
Bracket die
Glossy accents
Green bakers twine
Paper smooches greetings stamps
Red marker pen
Green marker pen

I first cut my card front and hand stitched around the edges with green thread, I then cut a speech bubble and bracket shape using my cameo.

I coloured in the bracket shape with red marker and placed this onto my card front.

I stamped the happy birthday greeting and placed the monster and buttons on my card front.

I think this monster is really cute :)

I hope you like my card and if there are any questions please ask.
