Let's Get Together Monkey card

Pam, at 365 Cards, has got an interesting challenge this week, " So today's challenge is called Digging Deep because it requires you to dig down in that stash to find the following things and include them on your card:
  • An item (not paper) that is at least 6 months old
  • 2 sheets of patterned paper that you've never used
  • An embellishment that you've had for more than a year
  • A stamp that you've never used but you've had for at least a year
So I went digging... The "advantage" to living in New Zealand and not having a craft store down the street from me is that a lot of my stuff is well over a year home (aka trips to visit California and stock up. Like the visit 2 years ago when I came back to New Zealand with 25 pounds worth of paper products, oops). I've got quite a few neglected clear stamps in my poorly organized bag and I ended up pulling out this Studio G sentiment. I also pulled out this fun prepacked set of card stock and paper from Paper Source, that I've had hiding away for more then a year. My ribbon is from who knows when. And my embellishment is the glitter glue that I put on the monkey's shirt. I bought that for the my children's art supplies and have been happy that it's been hiding away in the back of the closet since then since it's just a mess. Thanks Pam for helping me unearth long forgotten items.
Materials: Studio G clear sentiment, Paper Source patterned paper & card stock, Stampin Up circle punch, American Crafts ribbon, silver glitter glue, Stampin Up black ink,

I love that you packed a suitcase with paper! Reminds me of the time I flew home from NC with 35 lbs of stamps in a suitcase!!! Cute card!

So glad you were able to make use of those items to create this adorable card!
