Sweet Little Baby
This card is for 2 of my fave challenges:
SCS Sketch Challenge - Roxie has a simple, versatile layout this week.
Color Throwdown - Kristin has 4 fabulous colors that I turned into a baby card: Early Espresso, Bashful Blue, So Saffron, Crumb Cake.
I layered the frame so I could sponge Antique Linen distess ink along the inner and outer edges. I made a slit along the bottom so I could insert the body of the monkey image (stamped on subtle polka dotted DP & cut out). I highlighted his ears and nose and added a smile using Copics. Some baker's twine, a prima and some buttons finished it off. It's raining hard in VA and I'm SO THANKFUL it's not the white stuff! My heart goes out to those who got slammed elsewhere...especially the midwest and the plains...stay warm and safe!
