Sock monkey Friday freebie

Happy Friday! I'm here to show you my card featuring the Freebie Friday -  you can pick it up at no cost in the Bugaboo store.

This is the third time I play with this embossing folder, I got it in January, it was a freebie with a magazine. I used white ink on the embossed pattern to make it more visible.
Image is colored with Promarkers. I added a die cut strip of grass using a die from lalaland, the scalloped border is made with one from Dienamics. A Memory Box one was used for the sentiment made with a Lawn Fawn stamp. I stitched with blue metallic thread around the edges.

This card is also for:
Sketch Saturday - ANY sketch 215-396 (I chose #327)
Glitter n Sparkle - #173 Embossing (Dry or heat - I chose dry)
Crafty Friends Challenge - Animals/birds
ABC Challenge - A is for Animal

Very well choosen inking the embossed background in white, it looks great! I must remember this trik for the future. The monkey is very cute and the strip of grass matches perfectly with the scallop border, there is many continuity, like the effect! Another adorable clean and simple card (clean and simple for me, obviously... lol)
Hugs, have a nice weekend!
