SOCK MONKEY CAN SKI - CAN HE?

It's time for Bugaboo's Friday Freebie and today it's a wonderful one for Christmas!

If you're feeling the chill of the season, this adorable little SOCK MONKEY is sure to warm your heart!!


I used alcohol markers and a white gel pen to colour the image, using the DP as inspiration for my colour palette.

Other items from my stash to construct this card are:
white CS card base
Christmas theme (double sided) DP
corner punch
three sizes of circle dies (one for image, smaller one for green CS, smallest for DP )
sewn on sequins and beads
organza ribbon double bow.
