Bit by the Bug Beginnings: Another Bug is Born

You are going to want to go and visit Creative Bug on the Loose today because a new Bug has been born. Naomi is sharing with the world her newest release:

 Sock Monkey - Manchester Family

Here is my card that I created using this wonderful digi:

I used two papers from Décosse's Dynamite Doodles for the background which co-ordinated well with the patterns on a couple of the sock monkeys.  I have used a Spellbinders Labels die to cut out the image.  The matting is pearlised paper.  The colouring of the image is with copic markers B24, B000, G02, G00, Y02, Y000, RV02, RV000 plus the addition of Stickles - Star Dust.  I found this wonderful sentiment at Desert Diva which fitted perfectly.  I die-cut the sentiment using a pennant die from Spellbinders and then added some faux stitching to carry the stitched theme through.  I also added some rhinestones across the top corner of the card.
 The card roughly follows the sketch at Digi Haven.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
