October Card Challenge


Here's a little inspiration for our card making challenge for this month. I used the four required colors, black, orange, purple and green to make my dentally challenged monster. Can you guess what MSRS I used? For his hair I cut very thin strips of cardstock and crumpled them in my hand before attaching them to the back of his head with double sided tape. I used Pearl Pens for his pupils and warts! BOO!
