A cutey monster

Here is a little cutey who has, incidently, grown on me - dunno why I didn't like him to begin with.  He is one of my monsters from my monster pack from my DigiSparkle store.  

I based this on this sketch from Magical Crafts, it took me ages to think this through, I kept repositioning everything and then couldn't think how to 'do' the three flowers.  Inspiration finally hit when I finally thought of using the greeting for the 'flowers' and then it all flowed from there!

I coloured this cutey with my copics and then painstakingly cut him out (I'm only just getting better at cutting out while leaving a white border -  I love the way it looks but takes me ages!) Paper is from a Forever Friends For Him pack, stars cut using my nesties and a punch (what else!) and I hand wrote the sentiment using a black gel pen.

Hope you like it!
