Hambo Hoedown - Flower Monster Digi

Oh what fun - all the *new* Bacon Bits are posting today for the Hambo Hoedown using this ultra cute Flower Monster Digi... seriously, is he not the cutest monster taking a little chomp on that flower? LOL You get TWO sentiments with this digi and I chose to use the "If friends were flowers...I'd chews you!" - seriously adorable!

And the challenge: create a project that uses an item that starts with the first letter of your first name! And to be Queen of the Hoedown (coolest title evah), just check out the deets at the Hoedown page and then play along!

Since my name starts with an "M", I used my all-time favorite DP - My Mind's Eye (floral panel)!  :D

I used Karen's super cute Sweet Sunday Sketch Layout #137...I "might" have added a few more layers than the sketch shows but that's okay; layouts are a great jumping off point. Beyond that, I followed it pretty closely! And it just made sense to layer the Flower Monster Digi onto a flower nestie! I used a white gel pen to add some stitching.

A few other 'additions' to this card that you might not realize are there...I'll tell you what they are: the brown polka dots? They weren't there - that paper was a nice white color, so I stamped all the polka dots then aged the paper with PTI's tea dye ink and Antique Linen Distress Ink. AND I layered the little monster twice, and then layered the flower a 3rd time - isn't that fabby?  **love**

Hope you take time this week to join us over at the Hambo Hoedown.

... chewy monsters can be CAH-UTE ...

Hugs, ~M.
