Birthday monster!

It's Thursday and time for an OLDIE BUT GOODIE over at Catch the Bug. The image is called "Heart Monster" and I colored him up with Promarkers, added glossy accent to the hearts and added stickers to make a birthday sentiment in Swedish as this is going to be sent to my hubby's newphew who'll turn 18 in March.
The background I made using stamps from Panduro, Marianne and Prima, using grey and black inks, being inspired by the photo over at "TIME Out". I used number dies from Memory Box and cut out "18" and used the the inlaid technique.
I added the panel onto silver card stock and machine sticthed around the edges using white thread.
This card is also for:
TIME OUT Challenges - #50 Photo Inspiration
Tuesday Throwdown - #282 Create Your Own Background
Allsorts - Birthday wishes
Aud Sentiments Challenge - #149 Cute + Sentiment
