It was a High School Smash......The Monster Mash!!

Good morning everyone hope you are ok today.  At the mo the sun is shining here in Blackpool so fingers crossed it stays around for a while.  Yesterday was not too bad although it got very dark later on in the day but still managed to get washing dried on the line!!

Yesterday was Dave's grand daughter Emma's birthday but they didn't get back from their holidays til last night so we will be seeing her today with her presents.  She is now 9 and absolutely mad about Monster High which I think most girls around that age seem to be.  Naturally I had to make a card around that theme.  I thought that one of the images I got in my Pollycraft bundle had a bit of a Monster High theme to it and so I used that:


I coloured her with my Copics and tried to make her look like Emma with her blonde hair (although Emma doesn't have pink eyes lol). The papers are from Delightful Digitals on Etsy.  The two Monster High images are also from Etsy from Kaylen Designs, they come on a sheet of about twelve I just cropped them and enlarged them.  They are on springs so that they bounce around! I have used Shapeabilities and Edgeabilities for all my cutouts.  I chalked around the edge of the image with pink and aqua.  I followed the sketch on Sketch Saturday. Here is a side view so you can see the effect from the springs:


I have made some tags with the images for her presents and wrapped them up in Monster High colours.  I would like to enter the following challenges:
