Quit Monkeying Around...

Well, in my "monkeying around" I rocked a few challenges with this card...here's the challenges I followed:


Now onto the card...I started with my image (a freebie from Dustin Pike and pssst...if you like his images, he's starting his own stamping line...), I colored this adorable little monkey in with my Copics and cut him out with my Nestabilities Label 1. I printed off my sentiment and added a Cricut Banana (Animal Kingdom Cart) and wound some twine around it, then added a little heart sticker from K & Co. Towards the bottom I wound some twine again and tied it off and added a yellow button with a pink heart. I kept this card fairly simple since it was to be a masculine cheer up card...didn't want to go to girly with all the embellishments..and well, let's face facts, I can get a tiny bit carried away (grin!)... the inside of the card says ..." and get well soon"... thanks for joining me today, recipe below...
Recipe:
  • Digital Stamp: Dustin Pike
  • Paper: Deja View Leaf Red Garden, SU Chocolate Chip
  • Dies: Nestabilities Label 1, Cricut Animal Kingdom (banana)
  • Other: Hearts by K & Co, Buttons by Autumn Leaves, Twine and Grosgrain Ribbon
