Waffle Flower November Challenge Guest Designer

Hello everyone!
I have some very exciting news to share with you. For the month of November I will be a challenge guest designer for Waffle Flower Crafts. I am so honoured to be a part of this months challenge. Today I will be sharing a card that I made using the stamp sets 'Bowtiful' and 'Willy and Friends'. The challenge this month is to create a paper craft using the 'masking' technique'. There is also a photo inspiration and a card sketch provided for inspiration. I used all three of these great inspirations to create my card. I have included pictures of the inspirations below.
For my card I wanted my masking technique to be front and centre. I masked that adorable little monkey behind that golden bow. I used the photo inspiration for my colours. I wanted my card to carry some of the beautiful fall hues. I was inspired by the photos hanging leaves to make my bows into a garland. I gold embossed the bows and the sentiment, which is also from the 'Bowtiful' stamp set. I also used the card sketch for inspiration, but just turned it horizontally.
I copic coloured the sweet little monkey and added some gold stickles to her little bow. For the copic colouring I used R20, E53, E55, and E57. I finished off the card by adding some sequins for a fun pop of sparkle.
I hope that some of you will pull out those Waffle Flower stamp sets and come play along in the challenge. I can't wait to see your cute projects! Thank you again to Waffle Flower Crafts for this wonderful opportunity to be apart of this months challenge with the other talented designers. It means so much to me. xo
