Monster Birthday

I know that I have mentioned before that like many crafters I have a problem with ideas for male cards and tend to stick to making pretty things! However, sometimes we have to come out of our comfort zones, especially when a male birthday comes up! So here is today's card, made for a friend's little boy, I don't think he turned out too bad, I did wonder whether the orange was actually a bit peachy and I'm never sure whether to use ribbon on a male card!
