Just Us Girls #416 - Color Week

It's Color Week at Just Us Girls!  Vicki chose some colors that will work for Halloween or even a pretty card.
 
I pulled out this Monster Love stamp set because I just love these little guys!  I also wanted to send it to a little boy that is battling a rare form of cancer for seven months.  I saw a post on Taylored Expressions Facebook page about him, and all he wants are Halloween cards.  So I thought this would be a cute card to send to him.  I made the plaid pieces with a plaid builder set and the challenge colors.  The monsters were die cut then stamped.  I added shimmer to them and glossy accents to their eyes.  The background looked a little too white, so I spattered some black acrylic paint on it.   
 
If you would like to send a Halloween card to this little boy, here is the address:
 
Brock Chadwick

Biddeford, ME 04005
