September 17, Mr. Monkey



Doodle Pantry Image and SP, Leaf punch , MS grass punch, Our Daily Bread fence, Spellbinders Hexagon nesties, pop dots, The Paper Studio woodgrain embossing folder

This image is FREE if you enter the Doodle Pantry Challenge  this month by September 24 - and what a cute cute image to work with.  I send a lot of kids cards through Chemo Angels and this was perfect as we had a request for a little guy that was going through a difficult time.  Always seems like I can find just the right image from Doodle Pantry when I need it.  This was such a fun card to make - I knew I wanted a fence (I had just purchased one from the Stamp Expo in August, and I know I will be using this die a lot, I popped it up off the grass to look like he was maybe in a zoo setting.  Hexagons are so popular now so this little guy just fit, well almost I had to trim up a leaf and have it "out of the box" just a bit, again the monkey hexagon is popped up. I cut a bigger size hexagon from the front of the card then ran it through the cuttlebug with a "new" embossing folder I got at Hobby Lobby!!!  I am hoping this will bring a bit of cheer to my little guy.

What a cute card! The image is so cute, I like how you did the greenery behind the fence, really adds dimension and pizazz. I bet that little boy doesn't let this card out of his hands.
