Monster love

I am playing along with the Paper Smooches Sparks challenge again:

I am also playing in the Kraft Journal challenge - anything goes;  Young Crafter's Unite challenge and Scrapbooker's Paradise Ponderings challenge- Masculine.



I was also inspired by the woodgrain in this photo from The Tuesday Trigger.

Once again I have used the Falling For You set.  I have used some Echo Park Happy Halloween Paper.   The twine is from The Twinery.  I did some free hand sewing to create the 'woodgrain' on this card, making this fit the Raise the Bar challenge.
