A La Card Monkey Challenge GD


As I was one of the winners of the A La Monkey Challenge a week ago [most exciting!], I was invited to be a guest designer for this week's challenge! We had a sketch to follow and the theme was Fun. So here is my interpretation of Fun and the sketch! I must say it was fun too putting this card together.

I used the lovely new SU paper called Just Add Ink - all nice and bright and teamed it with Wild Wasabi, Poppy Parade and So Saffron. The little letters on the balloons were punched out of the Just Add Ink DSP with the half inch circle punch - perfect!

I hope you can be inspired by my card and will enter the challenge this week - I look forward to seeing everyone's entry!

I absolutely love this card! Such "fun" detail which obviously goes along with the theme! Such a cute idea to have the monkey hanging on the balloons. Great job with this, and congrats again for being selected for the guest DT spot! Best, Curt
