I finally got a card made for the challenge on the Paper Smooches Spark Challenge Blog where anything goes. This is a great challenge because then you can do anything you want, use any color and design.
Just like most cardmakers, we collect stuff. I had this cute little monkey in my collection of Paper Smooches Stuff and I wanted to use it. I have not made my Mom a card for ages so I thought this card would brighten her room at the nursing home. I got to use some of my favorite colors. Teal and orange - I was never much of an orange fan until I had a student worker who loved orange and she opened my eyes to it's creative possibilities.
I used the sketch from Seize the Sketch. A great sketch you can do lots with.
I also am entering it in a new monthly challenge I found - House of Cards. There challenge is to use a bow. I don't use lots of bows on my cards because the majority of my cards are for Operation Write Home and I try to keep my bulk down on these cards since they travel so many miles.
The patterned paper is from Basic Grey. I believe the ribbon is May Arts. I added some extra hearts in the lower left hand corner of the image. I fussy cut all the hearts. The little teal hearts have Glossy Accents on them to make them a little dimensional. The big heart and the image are pop dotted for more dimension. Did you see our little monkey has her belly button pierced. She is such a little rebel.
