Be As Special

Today Really Reasonable Ribbon is sponsoring the Card Positioning Systems Sketch and I am happy to share my project!
My images are by Hambo Stamps. I stamped Silly Monkey in Black Licorice ink and colored in using Copic markers. I paper pieced his shirt, matching the background designer paper. The sentiment, Be As Special was also stamped in Black Licorice. I used Lemon Baker's Twine from Really Reasonable Ribbon to tie up my banner, thread my button, and around the center of the card.

Here is the sketch:
Come play along!

Paper: This and That Charming Designer Paper (Echo Park)
Ink: Black Licorice (Stamp School), Copic Markers
