Mojo Monday 459 - Love ya bunches!

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.


Stamps - Stampin'Up Monkey Business, MFT Birds of Paradise
Cardstock - stash
Designer Paper - Graphic 45 Safari Adventure
Dies - MFT, Memory Box, Papertrey Ink
Ink - Staz On Ganache, Versafine, Hero Arts, Amuse
Misc. - foam squares, glue pen

Thanks for stopping by!  Sure did make a mess on the desk with this one!  :)

Pin It!
