Wanna Hang Out?

Hi everyone and happy happy Monday!
Today starts a new challenge over at the Bitten By The Bug 2 Challenge Blog!
The theme for this challenge is...

Cute Critters
Let's see some Cricut themed projects the feature an adorable critter.
*Your project must include a Cricut cut on it somewhere*

Here is a look at the fun card that I created to share with you today:

I used a metal die from Jaded Blossom to create my shaped card base. I simply cut two scallop rectangles out from some Kraft cardstock, scored along the back piece to make opening easier and adhered them together above the score line. Once I had my base created, I layered some wood grain paper on top. I cut that adorable monkey from the Life's A Party Cricut Cartridge and added her to a circle that I cut out using a metal die. I popped up my circle piece to the front of my card with some foam tape and started working on my greeting. I thought this sentiment from Stamping Bella was perfect! I stamped it onto a piece of white cardstock with some brown ink and added some greenery behind it. I was going for a jungle look and while I don't think I really achieved what was in my brain, I'm happy with how it turned out. I added a few little white flowers and some white doodles with my white gel pen for a little bit more interest and gave her a little bow to complete my card. So cute!
