#164 Bump in the Night - Birthday Boy

Hi everyone!  Hope everyone is having a great week so far!  Here is a card I created for the Throwback Thursday challenge over at My Creative Time.  For this challenge, Emma asked us to create a project using blue, green, brown and white.  We are also supposed to use an older Cricut cartridge.  The cartridge I chose was Bump in the Night, one of the Lite cartridges.
Here is what I came up with:

The monster was cut at 2.75" from the Bump in the Night cartridge.
The scalloped border was cut at 1" from the Martha Stewart Birthday Cakes cartridge.

The photo corners were punched with an EK Success punch.
I added detail to the edge of the card and to the photo corners with Tempting Turquoise Stampin Up marker.
I inked the edges of the monster with Pear ink by CTMH.
I used my 3/4" and 1" circle punches by Creative Memories for the background.
The sentiment "Birthday Boy" is two stamps from the My Creative Time set "Celebrate Good Times".

Hope you like it!
