My very first swap with the Great Swaps girls was to do a card using a combo found on the color wheel. I randomly spun my wheel(as well as it will spin) and landed on Close to Cocoa. I paired it with Barely Banana and Sage Shadow. I love this little monkey from Zoofari, so I stamped him and colored him in with markers. I used the SU Close To Cocoa DSP and color blocked the back and put brads in all the corners. I then popped them up and the monkeys. The sentiment is from Circle of Friendship and I used my SU punches to punch them out and layer them. I think it turned out super cute!! I forgot to take a picture of it before I left home, and my brother(who I am staying with in San Antonio) has the WORST lighting, so everything I brought with me to post will have to wait until morning(I took this off the GSG group album-thanks for posting it Becky)!! Thanks for stopping by and being super patient during my absence!! Have a great day and thanks for looking!!
