Oldie Moldie Monday and Friday Mashup Collide

When I saw the challenge on Friday Mashup - I got so excited.  Mix patterned paper.  Sometimes I think I am the queen of combining patterned paper.

We have a new co worker starting in the office.  Several years ago I started making monkey cards for the new employee and leaving it on their desk for their first day.  Welcome to the jungle is what it says on the inside.

I am slowly working on this 6 x 6 pad of Basic Grey paper.  I don't seem to get more than one card made a week out of it.  Busy times here and lots of cards to make.  I finished up a canvas this week for a graduation present and am working on a wedding card for this upcoming week end.

Here is my card with lots of layers of patterned paper.  How many layers are on it?  There are only six layers on this card.  What is your record for layers on a card.

The monkey is from Stampendous.  The patterned paper is from Basic Grey.  I cut the hello from recycled card stock and glued 4 layers together so it has some dimension.  After I glued them together, I used the pile on lots of weight to make sure it dried flat.  The card is a little smaller than the standard A2.  I like it when you can let an element hang over the edge of your card.

Everyone enjoy your Monday.  Another day of peddle to the metal this week at work and home.

Wow! You did an amazing job at laying all those different kinds of DSP! I am not so good at incorporating different DSP's on my card and admire your creativity!
Thank you for playing along with us at The Friday Mashup!
