Hi Bloggers, Today I'm sharing a card I made while trying to get one published for the October CARDS magazine. They didn't select it but now I have a cute card to send to someone! The theme challenge was Monsters, and it was also a sketch challenge too. I made this at least 6 months ago, so weird to make cards out of season. 
The Doodlebug design paper did most of the work. The monsters were printed on a journaling card that I cut out, rounded the corners and matted on black card stock. The Halloween sentiment is also cut from the paper. I diecut an oval, made a polka-dotted strip and layered it on a dippy goo punched mat. The purple card stock was dry embossed with a cuttlebug folder, stitched around the perimeter and alpha stickers and gems were added.
