Card Diva's Challenge #3!

As many of you know I get together with a stamping group once a month. We pick and image and use it as our "challenge" for the month. In honor of Simone loving animals that do human like things, I picked this little guy! What better than a monkey in an inner tube? Can you imagine the business the zoos would get with this guy there? But I digress......anyway, I decided to make a round gatefold card like Debbie Olson showed on her blog a couple of weeks ago. SHE made it look easy! After about 50 pieces of cardstock I finally got the dimensions right! The image was colored in with my Copics. (Sorry JoAnne!) And I found this ancient tie dyed paper from eons ago to match!
And of course no card would be complete without some kind of embellishment!

Check out the other divas to see what they came up with! (If they haven't posted yet, try back again later!)
