No Pinks or Reds

Talk about a challenge!  I was humbled last week when my card was picked over at Raise the Bar, and that meant that this week I would be one of three Guest Bar-tenders over at that fun challenge blog.  Our challenge was to make a Valentine's card without pink or red.  Did you hear that?!  NO PINK OR RED!  I felt stumped, so figured what better way to get it done than to just get to work.  This is actually my second attempt, as my first one actually looked like Easter, haha.

I pulled my Monster Mash set from Clear Dollar Stamps, and this is what I came up with.  Those little monsters make me smile, and my husband actually calls our kids 'little monsters' so they seemed fitting.  I also had these challenges in mind too:
Spoonful of Sugar #138 -- let's see some love
Creative Card Crew -- for a loved one
Stamps:  Monster Mash
Ink:  Versafine Onyx Black
Paper:  TE KI Kit, watercolor
Accessories:  Tombows & waterbrush, chipboard heart, Copic markers BV08 & BG09 with air brush, sticker letters, Circle Nestabilities, dimensionals, purple pen, black embossing powder, white gel pen
