Going Bananas


That makes me so happy!  I have missed this challenge!

This week, Jennifer hosted the challenge and wants a Baby Themed One Layer card.

I thought and I thought and finally found a few minutes to make this.....

We're seeing lots of these onesies around our house these days and Jack just happened to have one with monkeys on it.  His has lots of monkeys and since this is supposed to be CAS, I settled for just 3.

The card began as a tent fold cut at 4 1/4" and folded in half.  I used the 1 3/4" Circle punch to scoop out the leg and neck holes.

Since I just got the new SIMPLY SCORED from Stampin' Up!, I decided to go with a smocked look on the yoke.  I used to do English Smocking for my girls.  I put some ribbing on the sleeves too.

Well, I see I cropped the sleeves off.  They do have scored ribbing.

Looks like one of these monkeys has been in the bananas and needs his face washed.  It's funny how the pictures will show up what I don't see.  He looks like he's having fun anyway.

I stamped the little monkeys in Crumb Cake and colored the white area with a So Saffron marker first then did the scoring.

Did I tell you that I love this Simply Scored!  It has grooves every 1/8".    It even has place markers so you can keep you place.  I think I will be using this a lot!
