Summer Monkey

Welcome to another challenge at Little Miss Muffet Stamps and this time our theme is Buttons & Ribbon. I took this opportunity to create a boys card as I am plum out of those! I've seen meters on other blogs that count down how many holiday cards have been met and I should find one and use it for by cards... so this would be one down and only 24 more to go!! Not bad... that would be two a month.

For my card I used Summer Monkey from Little Miss Muffet Stamps. Then for the ribbon I used some burlap ribbon I had in the cupboard and lastly the buttons are a mixture of buttons and brads made out of corduroy; both are great for adding texture to the card. The rest of the card was kept simple and I was lucky to find some colorful, yet suitable, decorative paper for the theme. Thanks for stopping by. ;D
