I haven't played in a sketch challenge for AGES... how did life get so busy?
At any rate, I wanted to make a card to send to our grandson...just because. :) It's so much easier to create when you have a sketch as a guide. That's where the Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge 459 comes in.
That child loves monkeys! He even had a monkey themed birthday party this year so I pulled out a really oldie but goodie Stampin' Up set called "Monkey Business", paired it with some gorgeous Graphic 45 paper and some odds and ends from different dies/stamp sets and this is the result.
I have a whole new respect for metal dies after fussy cutting that monkey! I switched the rectangle shape out for a circle. There's still time to play if you're feeling crafty.
