I tried soooo hard to be inspired by "The Monster Mash" to make a card for Judy's challenge - I really, really did. The closest I could come was to use a witch from a set that was given to me and that was buried in storage because I never use witches, Halloween themes, and the like.
I did color her face and legs green to make her look a little more monstrous, and I used Halloween colors of black and orange. This was indeed a Monstrous Challenge for me. Perhaps it will make someone smile, and I stamped "Smiles are Contagious" inside.
My favorite part of this card was coloring the pumpkins - just about my favorite image to color. I did the coloring with Copics and inked the edges of all the circles. To redeem this card, it also fits this week's Ways to Use it challenge to include several round things. I've got 12 round things if you count all the pumpkin images and die cuts. I didn't try to count all the round things on the bg paper.
The sentiment says "best witches!"

Weren't there pumpkins in the video too? It was a hard challenge for some, but then I guess that's what life is like! Your card looks much more inspired by the theme than mine, LOL, and I love the sentiment you've used inside.
