Monkey business



   I have several young great nieces, nephews and grand children for whom I need to make cards. I have decided to make some cards in readiness in case I do not have time around the birthdays of these children. This is the first 'just in case' card.
   I matted and layered paper printed from Crafter's Companion birthday Popcorn the Bear CD ROM and core'dination cardstock onto white card. I attached two pieces of ribbon to a rounded cornered square piece of core'dination cardstock and then matted it onto a darker colour of core'dination cardstock. I fixed a happy birthday sentiment to it and after attaching it the card added a bow.
   The image 'Cheeky monkey' from Crafter's Companion Rachelle Anne Miller's collection of stamps was coloured using Promarkers. I then matted and layered this onto two different coloured core'dination cardstock and attached it to the card with foam pads.

   I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
   Send A Smile 4 Kids - anything for a child
   Creative Inspirations - birthdays
   I Love Promarkers - anything goes
   Allsorts - happy birthday
   Stamping Sensations - anything goes
   CD Sunday - tots to teens
   Papertake Weekly - ohhh, so cute
   Loves Rubber Stamps - fun with your name (Monkey, Adhesives, Ribbon, Yellow)
   Animal Friends - happy birthday

I think it's such a good idea to have a few just in case card on stand by as sometimes things just sneak up on us and although this is designed as a child's card just for fun you could send it to an adult.
