My Monkey Man!

Hi everyone!! Happy Saturday!!

Here is my card for today's Sketch Challenge at The Sweet Stop, SSS47!! What a fun sketch!!

I made this card for a friend at work who celebrated her birthday yesterday. I originally asked her if she was an Edward fan or a Jacob fan (she LOVES Twilight just like me!!), and she hesitantly said Edward. I then asked if there was someone that she liked MORE than Edward or Jacob (I know...I just felt the universe shift too), and she finally told me that she is an Emmett fan!!

For my card, I used the limited edition digi that was available a few months ago from The Greeting Farm, and I "think" his name is Jeremy (aka Emmett!). I printed him onto Choice Buttercream and colored him with Copic Markers.

The sentiment, "My Monkey Man" (all of you Twilighters get that!) is from Fictionally Inspired from Artful Inkables. It feels SO good to make a Twilight card...It's been AGES since I pulled out my box of Twilight stamps (yes...I have an entire box full!!).

The papers are a mix of patterns from Quite Contrary by My Minds Eye and I used my new Upper Crust punch by Fiskars for the border. I finished this one off with two Vanilla Brads!!
