Monkey Card: Made By Momo Callenge #1

I designed this card in my Gypsy Sunday evening. I never did get a chance to cut it. Well today I was watching a video on YouTube by MadeByMomo. She mentioned that he had a challenge posted on her BLOG.
The challenge was to make a card with an animal on it. I was going to do an animal shape card, then decided to make my monkey card. I'm glad I did. I think it is so cute.
Monkey & Vines are cut from the Create A Critter Cricut Cart.
Sentiment is using the Pooh Font Cricut Cart.
I used chalk to give the monkey rosy cheeks. I also used some tan chalk on the lighter parts of his face & body to give a little something to it.
The vines & the sentiment were welded in Gypsy. I also used my Gypsy to design the LO of the card.
At the last minute & decided to add another layer. I used the Cuttlebug with the Floral Screen Embossing Folder. I rubbed my ink pad directly on the embossed parts of that layer. I also inked the edges of the monkey & the card base..
Thanks for looking. Questions & comments are always welcomed.
