Weekend Sketch Challenge ~ Changito Monkeys!


This card was created using Beate's Weekend Sketch Challenge #35. I still had the Stampendous Changito Love Balloon monkey stamp out on my craft table so just decided to use it again today. I love Beate's sketches, especially on days when I don't know where to start! :)

Do you recognize this patterned paper? I've had it for over a year and rarely used it. It's a double-sided Stampin Up chocolate chip designer paper that has since been discontinued. The new SU catty has the same design in olive and blue now. (p 171)
I opted not to put a sentiment on the front of this card and will add it on the inside. I'm thinking it would make a perfectly fun, uplifting, thinking of you friendship card.
Thank you for stopping by today! Smiles 2 U! Pam :)

Such a cute card. I'm as bad as you in that I just HAD to have this paper. Guess what? Haven't used it yet. It looks great with your monkeys!
