Kind Monkey Business for Outlawz Wednesday Sketch

 Hello! Hope your Hump Day was grand. I was supposed to make this post this morning and had gotten most of it written a few days ago. But then forgot all about it. I guess I thought I'd done it. 😳 So, anyway, I will post it now and then work on adding my challenges.

Today I'm sharing my design team make for the new challenge over at Outlawz Wednesday Sketch. It begins today, 8/4 and runs through Tuesday, 8/17. Our sponsor is Sherry West Art and she has generously given us digital images to work with. First, here is the sketch for this time:

And here's my make:
Aren't these monkeys cute? I printed out on Springhill Digital card stock, colored them with my Promarkers and fussy cut them out. I cut an A2 card blank out of Recollections Heavy card stock, then I used papers from Echo Park's Jungle Safari 6x6 paper pad for the mat and top layer front and back, and for the front Neat and Tangled sentiment I stamped with Versamark and heat embossed with some Ranger green embossing powder. I love that the colors are bright and cheery!

I know I usually have more pics but for some reason I totally forgot to snap the back (which is just another yellow mat and jungle paper with a stamped siggie). This is a card for my sister-in-law and I left the inside blank for my handwritten note. Thanks for visiting me today and until next time, stay well and craft on! xox
