Promarker Challenge # 12 - Cocoa & Rose Pink

Over on the promarker challenge this week it's Cocoa and Rose Pink.....when I looked at the colouors together it just made me think of chocolate and cakes and all things sweet so I just had to use that digi image! I was a bit naughty as I went to Hobbycraft after work last night and treated myself to DCWV Sweet Stack 6 x 6 - not cheap at £7.99 for 36 sheets! I've wanted it for aaages though. Back to the twists or sketch to follow this week so it was nice and simple...just like my card this week :o)

Here's a close up of the cheeky little monkey - can't believe he's stuffed after eating such a small piece! I used Heat it up embossing power to create 'frosting'....

Never really used beads/charms on my cards but saw it my stash and thought it would add a nice touch. Note the cake extravaganza in the corner - yes please...

Used a fiskars punch to create a hole and threaded the ribbons through and knotted them. Decided to keep lengths different, think it looks a little imperfect which I like...

This sentiment was in one of my DCWV sticker stack's (I am definitely keeping them in business!) but it was white text so I used my cocoa promarker to go over it and also used my rose pink around the edge as that was white too. Again I didn't want to be too neat as you can tell...

The least amount of promarkers I think I have ever used on a card! Kept it simple...
