Purple Monkey!

No not on the same card come on that would be stretching me a bit!! thehheee

Both images are Karens doodles,
The first one is Bigsby I have coloured the image in distress inks and also Sakura star dust pens with a little white highlight and then some glossy accents for his baubles.. Only fair hu!
I cut the wreath totally out so I could add some text behind it says “have a Dreamy Christmas”
Purple for Karens Doodles
A few differnet layers of card stock the first/back layer is distressed and stamped and the 2nd later also distressed, 3rd layer is core colour vintage and the 4th layer is done with ink transfer through the cuttlebug,
I had a black glossy pen doodle too! Ribbon, candy and pearls and there you go…
Challenges I am entering

and for my second card also a KD image but this one is the lovely freebie… do go check out their site!

Cheeky Monkey

This is gonnna be going to my Son I always say he is a Monkey! Nooooo he does not eat lots of bananas nor does he swing on things! He is just plain CHEEKY!
