A Monster of an Invitation!

Our friends' daughter, Roxanne, called me the other day to ask me to make birthday invitations for her kindergarten son. She is taking the boys from his class to the Science Museum for a Mad Science birthday party. Sounds like a fun time for the boys! I tried to find something "mad science" related and settled on this monster image, Dreck, from Paper Makeup Stamps.
I used this paper from Cosmo Cricket as my starting point. I think it's great for boy cards...I've used it several times for that and I still have a bunch of it! I colored Dreck with copics, swirled some Baja Breeze ink around the image while it was still in the die, and added some stickles for some sparkle. The Soft Sky piece was run through a Cuttlebug folder and I used a Martha Stewart border punch for the red piece. The sentiment is from a Stampin' Up set (can't remember which one) and the stars were a last minute addition because that corner looked so bare.

Roxanne loved them and I enjoyed making them for her son! Thanks for stopping in today!
