Hi there, it's time for another card Hope You Can Cling To breast cancer card drive over at Splitcoast Stampers.  I'm hoping to get a couple more done over the weekend so I can mail them to the hospital in Texas on Monday.  It is such a great cause!  Today Wanda is challenging us to "Hang in There".  She wants us to create a card or 3-D project with a hanging image or hanging element.  Monkey Around from Our Craft Lounge is perfect for that!

It took a little creative planning for masking this image.  I had to think about what was holding what where and what needed to be on top blah, blah, blah.  Ha!  Anyway, everything was stamped on white card stock and colored with Copic markers.  A small tree branch and both monkey's heads were stamped twice and colored so they could be popped up on foam.

The ribbon the monkey is holding is from the OCL set called Granny's Support Team.  It was the perfect size for her to hold!  A tag, button from my stash and twine bow completes the card.

Copic coloring:

Tree:  E59, E57, E55, YG67, YG63, YG61, YG95, YG25, YG23  Boy monkey:  R30, E47, E44, E43, E40  Girl monkey (inside and out):  R30, E39, E37, E35, E30, R11, R10  Ribbon:  RV11, RV10, RV000  Sky:  R0000
