Annabelle Stamps: Say It With...Spots, Dots and Anything Round

After checking out the Annabelle Stamps Design Team creations for this week's challenge, I was itching to get into my craft space late last night and create!

The challenge at Annabelle Stamps this week is to Say It With...Spots, Dots and Anything Round:

I was particularly inspired by the round cards made by Kylie and  Sue K, thanks ladies...and this is the circle easel card I came up with for the challenge:
I had a lot of fun with this one. How can you be working with Lil Monster, and not be having fun? Even the kids cashed in on my fun this morning when they found some of my excess Lil Monster stamped images...and spent the morning colouring them in texta in preparation for Father's Day!

Project Recipe:

Cardstock: Chocolate Chip, Regal Rose Whisper White, Taken With Teal (all SU) and Blending Card (X-PressIt),
Paper: Glimmer Paper Silver and Loves Me Designer Series Paper (SU)
Ink: Chocolate Chip Classic Ink (SU) and Tuxedo Black Memento Ink (Tsukineko)
Stamps: Lil Monster's Balloon (Annabelle Stamps) and Boys Party (Annabelle Stamps)
Punches: 1 Inch Circle, 1 1/4 Inch Circle, 1 3/8 Inch Circle, 1 3/4 Inch Circle and Owl Builder (all SU),

Isn't little monster so cute. He is on my wish list of stamps. Think your circle card is very clever, love the sparkles. Sandy :)
