Mischievous Monkey- cQc#49

Arielle over at the colourQ has the perfect color combo this week for a card I need to make for my cousin who is having a baby boy! The theme for the baby is monkey's and wen I saw these colors, I knew I could make them work for a baby boy monkey themed card! They are Soft Suede, Night of Navy, Pacific Point, Marina Mist and Whisper White.

Here is what I came up with, a mischievous monkey! I had a lot of fun putting this card together and deciding what I wanted to do with it.

I promise all I used to make this card were the colors from this week plus a teeny tiny Basic Black. I got the lighter parts of him my sponging Soft Suede onto Whisper White card stock.

I used all SU! punches to make him and the "baby Boy" letters were die cut using the Big Shot. I added a little bit of
hair to his head by fraying a small piece of ribbon. The Marina Mist background has some clouds sponged onto it using Marina Mist Classic ink and Whisper White Craft ink and a scalloped circle as the template.

I was thinking this could also be a decoration for the baby's room if it was framed and hung on the wall!

Thanks for looking!

Rochelle, What a clever idea to have the monkey peeking through! Another thing I love is the little tuft of "hair". Just a really great card and you used the colours so well.
