Monkey Love


Hello everyone! This is the card that I made for the Simply Crafts challenge. This time the challenge is to use the tree from Sweethearts.
Of course I COULD NOT help it but to use the so so cute monkey from the cart too! This cut is my ALL TIME FAVORITE from all the carts that I own! LOL! It's just SO CUTE!
I cut the tree at 4 inches and stamped the pink layer with the X's and O's stamp from Whimsical Designs With Love set to create the "leaves". The monkeys were cut at 1.5 inches and I used a black pen for the faces. I also added eyelashes to the girl monkey and added a twine bow. For the heart leaves at the bottom of the tree I punched them from a heart punch and layered them at the bottom. I stamped the sentiment in the middle of the tree and also added more X's and O's to the side. To finish I added a ribbon. This is the card that I am going to give to my hubby for Valentine's Day! Here is the picture of the stamp set I used. I LOVE the tiny xoxoxo stamp!
I am also going to enter this into the following challenges:
More Than Favors- Wacky Wednesday-LOVE
Cardz TV- "Be My Valentine"
Cardz TV DT Challenge- "Tickled Pink"- use pink as your primary color
The Kraft Journal- So Romantic Challenge
