Monkey Monday

Still working on the 4 monkeys (how many monkeys make a barrelful btw?) which Lynsey needs to collect tomorrow and only able to sneak onto the computer while Neil is off making some scrummy French Onion soup for lunch so only time for a hasty post today.

My card was inspired by the Stamptacular Sunday challenge Who said three's a crowd? which suggested 3 papers, 3 ribbons and 3 flowers. The papers are Making Memories, the flowers Petaloo and the ribbons are all from my stash and have been around for a while - especially the green bow which uses recycled ribbon from a very long since birthday present. Anyone for Anya wanted to see 2 images but didn't specify whether they both needed to be GF so I used a butterfly from an old set of clear stamps I found in a drawer and have never used before (the butterfly, not the set).


Entering the following:
Anyone for Anya - Use 2 images
Stamptacular Sunday - Who said three's a crowd?
Gingerloft - Things that fly
Crafty Pad - Girly
Corrosive Challenges - Reuse, reduce, recycle (Green bow)
Crazy Challenge - Dots & stripes
Sketchy Colors -  Sketch
Crafty Catz  - use a forgotten stamp (butterfly)
Paper Sundaes - Distressing
Our Creative Corner - choose any 3 colors that are next to each other on the color wheel
Stamp, Scrap & Doodle - Anything goes
