Monster Truck!

What do you make for your 4 your year old nephew - a monster truck full of sweets and chocolate of course.  If he has half as much fun with it as I had making it we'll be onto a winner.  It started off as a shaped card and just kept growing.  The little monsters are all from Lettering Delights and there's finger puppets, wrappers for the chocolate bars, circdles I've attached to gold coins and little sweet bag wrappers.  The trucks are from Craftwork Cards, they're chipboard shapes are fabulous.

This little project was inspired by a couple of challenges:
A Spoonful of Sugar - 3D something
Papertake Weekly - Do something different
Cupcake Craft Challenges - don't be square

So what else would a 4 year old need for his birthday - a card of course.  Another little monster and a mixture of digi monster paper and some patterned paper from October Afternoon.
This was based on a couple of sketch challenges:
2 sketches 4 you - sketch 51
CPS - sketch 164

It's not his birthday until next week but let's hope that he like it.
