Monster Love All Shook Up - Another A Step in the Dark Challenge

Are you ready to take A Step in the Dark with me???? It's a new challenge at A Step in the Dark Challenge Blog with our wonderful sponsor Dilly Beans!

For my project, I chose Monster Love for a card for my sweetie for Valentine's Day!

  • Recollection purple cardstock for a size A2 card with scraps for background
  • Monster Love was colored using Spectrum Noir and Whisper Stroke Markers with gel pen accents and then made into a shaker card just to shake things up a bit
  • shaker card has scraps from Martha Stewart Heart Border Punch, pearls from Miriam's Crafting Supplies, and confetti
  • hand-written sentiment on front, "I'm all shook up" was chalked around the edges
  • felt Valentine with rhinestone
  • XOXO was from Create with TLC February Club
  • black lace on bottom of the card
  • Darice brown eyelash ribbon around shaker card and tied into a bow
  • inside sentiment, "Groovy kind of LOVE" is from Create with TLC Love is in the Air Vintage Image and Word Art Transfer Set with my own added little twist - "We've got a" which was chalked around the edges, mounted on scraps of paper from the front and the Martha Stewart Heart Border Punch 

  • Conversational Hearts are stickers
