Monkeying Around

Hello.  Welcome.  It's that monkey again!!  I think this is rapidly becoming my favourite die.  He's such a happy chappie.  And he goes so well with these fun sentiment stamps from Rubber Dance.  

I have found a new challenge to play along with.  A Dutch challenge.  I haven't looked very much at Dutch challenges but this one caught my attention.  The Hedgehog Hobby Shop wants to see black and white OR blue and brown.  Both great combos,  but I decided Monkey looked best in brown. 

I cut Cheery Lynn Yay! Monkey from dark and light brown card.  I used DCWV Far East stack for the other papers.  Love the texture.  I ripped the edges of the brown layer and cut Cheery Lynn Small Tea Rose from the blue.  I stuck the roses all over and hit everything with Blueprint Sketch distress ink.  The sentiment is from Rubber Dance Funny Birthday set.  Love how you can get monkey to hold things!!  

Mounted my panel on a blue card base and used Wink of Stella on the edges of the panel.
