8 Arms Are Better Than 2

Ever wish you had more arms than 2, so you could do more things at once? This cute little octopus must be great at multi-tasking! Unfortunately, I can't help you figure out how to get more arms, but I can tell you how you can get this little Octopus for your very own. You can stop by Stamping Dragon Designs and browse their shop. This cutie is there waiting on you for you to buy her and bring her home. While you are there, pick up some of her friends, too. Rupert, Jiggy, and Penny are there and would love to come home with you, too!

For this card, I used the Sketch at I Love Promarkers. They wanted us to use their sketch and no more than three colors. I certainly have that covered, with this monochromatic card. I used my favorite gingham paper, yet again. The corners were punched with a photo corner punch by EK Success. The old pink ribbon is from my stash. I used a white opaque pen from inksentials to add the white dots. The image is pop dotted for 3D effect

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
