You Light Up My Life ~Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbon~

You Light Up My Life
 Can you stand the cuteness? And seriously, who said monsters were scary? As a mother of 3 young kids…it's my duty to make the bad dreams go away. I think this little guy would make anyone's day a bit brighter =)
 This is my share today for my Design Team posting day over at Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbon. I wasn't sure where to start with papers but am so happy with how this turned out! Kinda simply but darling! Hehe! I think the background shape (yes, a PPPR cutting file) really helped the little guy pop from the page, as well as cutting these on a printed paper. Just more interesting then plain ol' card stock =)

 I added this extra picture because I wanted to show how I added a bit of glitter to the background behind the top layer of the monster. As well as to the lantern and black border on the shaped piece. 

 Well cool, that wraps it up! Here are the files I used in case you want to check them out! Have a GREAT week all! 

There is also a bundle option with more monsters
