Weddings and Monkeys

This first card has been made for a wedding I'm going to on the weekend. It's cased from the Featured Stamper Challenge on Sunday. I changed Teneale's card by including the Technique Challenge from yesterday which was a Suspension Card. Beate's instructions were super easy to follow and are here.

You can't tell to easily from the photo, but I have created a shadow of the swirl image by stamping it on white with Versa Mark. The little white flowers are VersaMark too. I love using these little pearls from the Pretties Kit and because they glisten so nicely I'm using this card for the Dazzle Challenge over at Stamp Something.














My second card is for today's Colour Challege of
Barely Banana, Groovy Guava and Chocolate Chip. When I saw these colours I immediately thought of bananas and monkeys. Since I don't have any bananas or big trees I decided to create a wheelbarrel of monkeys.

The sketch for this card is from Our Creative Corner although I turned it on it's side so I could hang a monkey off the handle of the wheelbarrel.



Hope you're having a great Tuesday. Thanks for stopping by - JOAN

I have to admit that I got a bit nervous when I saw the title Wedding and Monkeys...I though maybe you were attending a monkey wedding...or worse a monkey crashed a wedding you were at! Oh the thoughts, but I digress...Your first card is lovely! But I really like the monkeys! I love the way the little guy is hanging off the handle, great idea!
