ICRC28: Card/Project with Speech Bubble and a Witty/Pun Sentiment

Happy April Everyone!

April is my favorite month of the year!  The birds are chirping, the flowers are blooming, and the sun is warming everything up.  It's also my birthday month!

The beginning of a new month brings new challenges our way, and we have one for you over at the INDIAN CRAFT ROOM!   This was a fun card to make, as I loved the witty/sentiment idea!  

Here is the Challenge for the month of April
ICRC28: Card/Project with Speech Bubble and a Witty/Pun Sentiment

When I was first putting together ideas for this card, I could only think monsters!  I've been wanting to use these monster digis that I had found a while back.  I colored them in with my copic markers, and added the googly eyes.  The sewing took quite some time, as the holes were so close to the edges.  I had to be careful not to cause any tears.  I stamped out my sentiment, drew a border around it with my maker for the speech bubble, and cut it out.  The sentiment is from the "Monster Mash" stamps set.  I've had this set from The Alley Way Stamps for almost a year now, and was excited to finally use it!

Here is my card...
