Anything Goes for Monkey 92

It was time to get out some scraps and make a card for challenge 92 at A La Card Monkey. The sketch is pretty simple:

What a cute little owl! Anyway, I opened my "scrap" drawer and went to work. I heat-embossed the sentiment and image. It took me a couple of tries to get the heat-embossing right on the image - I kept scorching the paper LOL. I colored in the image - from the "Its a Loop Thing" stamp set - using pink pirouette and bashful blue markers. The only paper that I'm sure of where it came from is the lower left DSP, that's from the Ice Cream Parlor package that I got at last year's Sale-a-bration. The embossed ink has a sparkle to it, and the flash on my camera made the "Happy Birthday" look a little faded out on the right side, but in person it's all there.


  1. Great card and I just love that DSP I have been hoarding some but I should get it out and let the world enjoy it too!
