My Second Week as Hostess for Mo's Digital Pencil Challenge

First of all I want to thank everyone who participated in the challenge last week.  It was so much fun to see all of the different variances of Blue and Brown.  My challenge this week for Mo's Digital Pencil Challenge is to create a card that is any shape except a rectangle, square or any shape that folds into a square or rectangle.  I used the monkey image, which makes me giggle every time I see it, for my onsie:

I created the template a couple of years ago when I couldn't find a template that I like.  The digital images are so perfect for the onsie as you can resize them so they fit perfectly.
The template prints perfectly on an 8 1/2 X 11 inch piece of cardstock and when folded it fits perfectly in an invitation envelope. 

Isn't the little monkey just perfect on this?

The faux stitch lines are hand drawn.
The edges were sponged with Broken China Tim Holtz distress ink and I colored the monkey pants to match.
The baby buttons are from my stash.

Make sure that you check out the rest of the DT creations, they are awesome.

Some ideas to think of for any shape except rectangle or square would be: a house, dog house (for bronte), an egg, Circle, Cross, a purse, .......
I hope you all play along and I can't wait to see what you create :)  There is always a random drawing from the participants for a free Mo image.

Thanks for stopping by

Happy Coloring

Cathy, your onesie is so cute and that Lil' Monkey is so perfect. Your shading around the edge is so smooth, I had to read to see if you had airbrushed, amazing. Great challenge, sorry it took a bit to get through my thick skull! Thanks for the wonderful comments.
