Monster Balloons

The challenge this week for Little Miss Muffet Challenges is "Stitching." I used both real and faux stitching on this card, however, both are hard to see unfortunately. I machine stitched a zig-zag around the border of the card and then I drew in a faux stitching on the center diecut. I've actually had this monster colored up for a long time so it was nice to finally use it. ;D

Did you know? Otters are semi-aquatic mammals and the subfamily Lutrinae forms part of the family Mustelidae, which also includes weasels, polecats, badgers, and wolverines. Otters mainly eat aquatic animals, predominantly fish and shellfish, but also other invertebrates, amphibians, birds and small mammals. An otter's den is called a holt or couch. A male otter is a dog, a female a bitch, and a baby a whelp, kit, or pup. The collective nouns for otters are bevy, family, lodge or romp, being descriptive of their often playful nature, or when in water raft.
