Are you ready to monkey around - in a colourful way!

Good morning all

Sorry I'm a bit late this morning - I had left my post in draft by mistake so it didn't publish - anyway...

it's the first challenge of the new year at 

and our lovely Carol is hosting this week

She has chosen a picture/colour inspiration for us

Perfect for Shabby chicPerfe design -  pink and turqoiuse colors

I decided to go with the colours - I was going to use flowers and leaves as well but went with a ribbon instead - now I'm thinking I would have liked the flowers version better - hmm if you can't please yourself there's not much chance of anything is there - I might refurbish it - I'll let you know!!!
(by the way - the satin ribbon and pearl embellie is not as wonky as it looks here - rubbish photo skills lol)

I thought I'd use this cute image from The Paper Shelter - it's a bit different from anything that's around just now - quite new, and very cute

Called Monkeys! it is available here in The Paper Shelter shop

This is what I did......

Image - Monkeys! from The Paper Shelter
Coloured with copics and Spectrum Nior pencils
Papers - Spring Feast from first Edition
Sentiment stamps - Anna Griffin
Ribbon - Carnmeal Cottage
Pearl /Ribbon embellie - creative expressions
Pearls from my stash

Hope you'll join us over at MAWTT this week - it's a lovely colour pallette - and I'm sure most floral cards will fit in with the theme too

Challenges I'm entering with this card

Tuesday throwdown - favourite embellie (ribbon)
try it on tuesday - favourite things (ribbon)
