Little Monkey with Creative Knockouts

Hi everyone,
I hope you're all well.

There's a new challenge over at Creative Knockouts

Our theme this week is 'For a Child'.

Here's my little bit of inspiration...

We're being sponsored by the fabulous Meljens Designs who very kindly gave us an image to play with. I chose this gorgeous little monkey called 'Monkey Toes', which you can find here. He's on sale at the moment so there's no better time to add him to your collection. I've coloured him using Copics and added sakura glitter pen to the swirls. He's displayed on a Spellbinder Picot Edge circle. I've used a LOTV rubber stamp for the sentiment, which I've cut out using a Sizzix framelit. The heart balloon is a Marianne die which accidentally fell into my basket when I was ordering my new Big Shot...funny how that happens...(well it was a bargain - only £2!). The backing paper is by First Edition and I've finished off with some glittery blue ribbon from my considerable ribbon stash.
Isn't he just adorable? 

I hope you'll join us. You could win 4 Meljens digis.

I would like to enter this for the following:-

Thanks for visiting. I hope to see you again soon.
Hugs Helen xx
