Monkey Toes

I created this card as more inspiration for our embossing challenge at 2 Sisters.  I used this cute monkey image from Meljens called Monkey Toes.

I started with a kraft base.  I embossed a piece of pink card stock using a dot embossing folder. I punched a strip of kraft card stock with an eyelet lace border punch. I added a sheer pink dot ribbon to it and added it across the middle of the card.  I colored the image using crayola and prisma color pencils.  Then cut the image and sentiment out in a circle, backed them both in pink and then in white.  Then cut around them with scalloped scissors.  I added a pink dot button and a bow made out of the same sheer dot ribbon. I added a pink rhinestone to the top corners of the punched strip.  Then I added mini pink rhinestones to the image and to the sentiment.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
