Cheeky Monkey!

Hello friends!  I was playing around cleaning in my craft room one day and found this unopened packet of a-dorable die cuts from Pretty Little Studio and just had to make a card. 

Is this not the cutest little cheeky monkey you've ever seen? This card gave me the opportunity to find printed papers in my scrap box to use up.  I found this scrap of polka dotted paper that almost matched his little cap perfectly!

I've mounted this little guy onto a fun stitched Plaid Tag from Impression Obsession, from my days with DRU.  I don't know if it's still available, but it's a favorite of mine.  

I colored a piece of white seam binding and once dried, tied it up into a crinkly bow. I do love it when a card just falls together so easily.

I'll be entering this card into The Sisterhood of Crafters challenge, using polka dots and also Word Art Wednesday, where anything goes.  
I just discovered that Cut It Up Challenge is also dots & or stripes, so I'm entering this card into that challenge as well.  

Thanks for stopping by!

Totally Cheeky.....or Curious--he reminds me of George--we still read the books with Penny and soon with Evie. I love the Designer Papers you picked out with this beauty and all of the lovely layers and that nice die cut. So cute!

what a great find while you were cleaning up, and to find great papers to match it well that is just perfection! That just brings a smile and I love how you finished it off with the seam binding!
