I chose Basic Black card stock for the base of the card. I embossed the Blushing Bride layer with the large dots of the Backgrounds 1 Texturz Plates. I layered Whisper White on a mat of Basic Black and attached it to the embossed layer. I layered Basic Black Satin Ribbon with Blushing Bride Stitched-Poly Ribbon, turning under the Blushing Bride ribbon on the right side to soften up that edge. I attached this whole layer to the card front. Using the 1/2" Circle Punch and the 3/4" Circle Punch, I punched out one Whisper White and one Basic Black circle, inserted a Blushing Bride Glimmer Brad and used a Stampin' Dimensional to attach it to the ribbon. Hello baby from the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set was stamped with Basic Black ink on a scrap of Whisper White card stock, punched out with the Word Window Punch, sponged around the edge with a Sponge Dauber and Blushing Bride ink and adhered it just above the ribbon. Using VersaMark and Black Stampin' Emboss Powder, I heat embossed two monkeys from the Fox and Friends stamp set on Blushing Bride card stock and cut them out with Paper Snips. The branches were punched out of Pear Pizzazz paper using the Two-Step Bird Punch. I attached the branches and hung one monkey by his tail and sat one on the branch popping both up with Stampin' Dimensionals. Their little bellies looked like the polka dots in the challenge picture. I hope you like these little fellows. Leave me a comment and let me know what you think.
