Cricut Cartridge Chaos Challenge

Paula over at More Than Favors has weekly challenges using different Cricut Cartridges each week called Cricut Cartridge Chaos.
Looked like fun so I pulled out my Mini Monster Cricut cartridge, which is the cartridge to use this week, to see what I could do. This is one of my favorite carts. My card is a bit "out of this world" with some wacky colors. Don't ya just love those eyes. I found them at my craft store in the doll aisle, lashes and all.

Here's how I did it....
Pattern paper is from Anna Griffin, Imaginations, Creative Memories and scraps from my stash
Card base is cut at 5.5" from Wild Card, p.51
The circle frame is cut at 3.20" from Wild Card, p.39; I placed the frame on top of the card base and hid the outer circle on my gypsy before cutting to be sure the opening on the base matched the opening on the frame.
Punched a yellow circle with my CM large circle punch
Sentiment is from Scrappy Moms A Haunting We will Go stamp set
Stickles, chalk, doodles with my white gel pen and a scrap piece of ribbon stapled on the inside complete this project.
