Go Bananas!

Even though I didn't in much stamping time this weekend, I did manage to get a lot of other things done and crossed off my ever-growing list! I did, however, take time to play along in a challenge. Actually, this is for TWO challenges. I can't believe I managed to do THAT!

The first challenge is from JustRite Inspirations to create a card for kids. I also used the Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge 69 for my layout!

The image I used is from the JustRite Let's Celebrate 2" Square stamp set. I stamped twice on watercolor paper using Onyx Black Versafine ink, then embossed with JudiKins Detail Clear embossing powder. The stamped image was colored using Tombow Markers . I cut the monkey and banana from the second stamping and popped it up with foam tape for dimension.

I made the decorative mat using my new Martha Stewart Optic Dot Punch Set . All the designer paper on the card is from the NEW Cosmo Cricket Delovely paper pad. The Aqua Rhinestones were added for a little bling. The yellow cardstock is Primatics Classic Yellow .

The inside of the card is blank. I think it would be perfect to tuck a little money inside to send a deserving grandchild for a great report card. I feel sure they will agree. :)

Thanks for stopping by today!

More cuteness with this set! I love the idea of a money card that says "go bananas" on the outside. Tee hee! Perfect!
