Monkey Happiness

Happiness plus sketch is the theme for this week's A La Card Monkey challenge (#97 and getting closer to blog candy). I started out intending to make a Birthday card, but it didn't end up that way:

As I was combining the Sweet Stitches DSP with the polka dotted ribbon, it just seemed to scream "Easter" more than "Birthday". And Easter is a happy time too, right? It's an end to winter and a welcome to all the newness of spring. I'm not sure exactly which blue the cardstock is, it was in a multipack. I added a layer of white embossed with the polka dot embossing folder. The bunny is stamped with Early Espresso and then I cut him out and attached him to the scalloped circles. I added a couple of buttons for a little added dimension. If you want to play along this week, here's the sketch:


  1. It does look more like Easter - so cute! Love the colors too.

  2. Oh your card is so lovely. Love the spring colors and the liitle rabbit is so cute. Thanks for joining us at A La Card Monkey.

    Hugs, Uta

  3. What a cute Easter card! Love that Sweet Stitches DSP in the background. TFS!
