I love you - Free Friday Catch the bug

Friday February 5, 2016
Woo hoo it's Friday and that means it's the weekend tomorrow and at Catch the bug / Bugaboo it's Free Friday.. The image is called My little sock monkey flowers
You can find this cute monkey at in the Bugaboo store.. it's free for a week so hurry up and grab it..

This is my sock monkey card. I have a sock monkey that is quite old. I hold it dear.. I used a tag that Monika at Creative with Monika gave me for my birthday.. I love tags and don't use them often enough and so this was perfect. I stapled the colored image using my tim holtz mini staple. I added a heart from a die /taylored expression and d.o.t.s. sentiment. I added some sequins and to give the base some texture I used my scor buddy and did various width lines here and there.. I added some jellybean twine and called it done.

I am a tag lover, too, and I think your card is very cute! Great idea for using your Scor-Pal on the background (may borrow your idea!). Thanks for joining us at Cards In Envy!

Thanks for joining us at AYLI challenge this week. I'm guessing from your beautiful card that you love to use many layers in your card making, if you could add somewhere in your post the reason for preferring a multi layered card then you will be eligible for the prize draw.
Many thanks
