Whimsy Stamps Challenge #23

Our Challenge this week was punches!  One of my favorite things.  I chose the Whimsy Stamps Monkey.  I think he's just so sweet.  I punched the card base with the largest curved rectangle Nestabilities (american crafts coffee paper).  The inside is cut with one of the label nesties (I need to look up which one - I really should label them in my box).  The 'frame' is popped up with foam dots.  The vines and leaves are Martha Stewart punches (American crafts paper).  The flowers were made with the MS 3 in 1 Hydrangea punch.  I have the larger hydrangea punch on order and can't wait until it is here.  I then put them on top of a piece of craft foam and rolled a ball stylus to give them some dimension.  I added a small Kaisercraft pearl to the centers.  Mr. Monkey is stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with copic markers.  The sentiment is from one of my CTMH sets.  This was punched with the same label shape as the inside of the frame.  It is tied off with some green SU organza ribbon.

I hope everyone is ready for a fantastic week.  I have a 'to do' list a mile long.  Hoping to get lots checked off this week.
