Boo!......{Halloween Challenge Card}

Good Morning and Happy Hump Day!!
I am back with another Halloween card...this one for the Peachy Keen Stamps New Release Challenge #1 as well as a few other challenges my card fit into. 
The challenge over at PKS was to use only 2 colors...sounds pretty easy until you go to make it.... After going though my Halloween paper collection, I found some fun patterns that were only purple and black so those are the colors I went and made a 
cute purple monster based on the sketch that you can see below from Inspired by Stamping
I hope you like my card :)
What do you think??? Lots of purple that is for sure....LOL!
And such an adorable monster too :)

Here he is up close.
 I added my PK Make a Monster Face to him, colored in his eye and mouth with my white gel pen and the rest of his face with my purple copic marker.
I also chalked him up a bit to give him some more dimension and color.

Here is the other side of the card. I used MCT Stitched Vintage Label die for the banner as well as the Lowercase Fun Dies for the sentiment.
I tied a bow using some crinkle ribbon from 3GJ and added a button from my stash embellished with the new release Totally Grape Trendy Twine.

Supplies Used:
Paper~ Black, DCWV~The Spooky Time Stack
Stamps~ Peachy Keen Stamps~PK-691 Make a Monster Face
Dies/Cuts~Short Monster~Silhouette Store
My Creative Time~ Lowercase Fun Dies
