Dustin's So Square!

I wasn't going to make a father's card this year, but then I thought, we have a new dad in the family, Tom, son-in-law, baby Niamh is nearly six months old, so I thought I'd make him a Father's Day Card using one of Dustin Pike's little monsters. I think the little monster was holding toffee apples, ready to munch on at Halloween, but I've covered those with flower heads.
I've covered the card in some of my ProMarker stripy paper. I never know what papers to use when there's such a bright image to colour so end up using the same colours I've used on the digi as stripes on the backing papers., that's Gold, Soft green and Sunkissed Pink, (my newest Promarker)
I've 3D-ed the Monster, to mke him pop out of the card. and coloured him using those same colours. I print the sentiment with the first image and then just copied two more, and cut them out, fix over the top with 3D gel glue.
The little banner triangles did start off on a bit of red cord, but because you can't see it, the last two letters are just fixed onto the card. The rest of the papers were just bits left over, including the punched out flowers. the white button I found in my stash, and the yellow spotty ribbon already had a sticky back, so that got used too! I've used black card to layer the topper, but didn't have enough for the card, so that is black Promarker. (It's a Pearl card, so it doesn't bleed through to the inside!)
