The Missing Monkey

 This card is a remake....as I said in one of the other posts for this latest digi release from CC Designs, I dribbled glue all over the face of the original and completely wrecked it trying to get the glue off, what a silly monkey!   Well at least the baby's arrived now:
The image is "Baby Monkey" and is one of the collection being released at All That Scraps...TODAY!!  The Crafty Pad has Something New (New house, New baby etc) so I'm entering there.  I already entered the challenge but linked the wrong card, woops!
I started out using this months sketch from Crafting Lifes Pieces, but once I used my Lacey Circle Nestie to cut the image panel, I felt the need to keep it all a bit more basic....you don't get much more basic than the layout of this card! It leaves me a lovely sketch for later!                                        
The patterned circle behind the image was a circular card I bought in a pack of five - I bought them for the beautiful pearl envelopes in the set!  I pierced around the edge to add a bit of interest. The other papers are from my stash...(one is from DCWV Far East stack) I paper pieced the pram with some checked paper from Grace Tyler.  Craft Your Passion  has paper piecing as its challenge theme this time, so I'm there!!  I coloured the image with Prismacolor pencils, adding some shading to the paper piecing too.  I think I'm Prisma-improving - learning to use a light touch!
Crafty Creations has Let It Shine as its challenge theme, not only is the star all glittery but I added gold stickles to the heart and the hubs of the pram wheels...Shine On :-)
Inside the card is decorated very simply, with my glittery little star and some swirls added with sticky back pearls....Totally Gorjuss has Swirls and Pearls as its challenge theme this time, I hope that mine being inside doesn't disqualify them. Paper Play Challenges has Stars and Stripes as its current challenge theme, my stripy paper is half of it and the funky little paperclip holding the sentiment (from Kaisercraft) is the other half...I was going to use the chipboard star that I used inside then remembered I'd bought these paperclips from Officeworks, they come in all different colours so no doubt you'll see them again, lol.
Delicious Doodles has Cute and Cuddly as its challenge theme this time around; I think you'll have to agree this little darling is both Cute and Cuddly, so I'm entering there.  Why don't you hop over to the All That Scraps Blog and have a look at the rest of the Digi Design Teams creations...it's well worth it!  if you havent seen my other offerings, you can see Latte Monkey here and Ladybug and Caterpillar Monkey here.
Well, it's bedtime for baby now, and pretty much bedtime for me! It's 11pm, by the time I have my cocoa I'm bound to be ready (has anybody else noticed that the "big night in" is so much more appealing than going out at all...no, surely I'm not getting old - it's winter here, that's it!
I'll be back on Sunday, with my Here Comes the Boys card.  Until next time, Happy Crafting, Dee
