Monkey Challege 84


Hi peeps!  I have a quick card for you this morning, courtesy of those sweet girls at a la Card monkey – Shirley & Terri!  They asked me to be a guest designer again, and this week it’s an “Anything Goes” challenge, using this sketch:

Monkey84 Anything Goes-001

It seems like I am making lots of Christmas cards, so I switched gears and used this to make a thank-you card for a recent hostess:


I switched it up just  a little, putting my ribbon down the front of the panel instead of behind. I added a sentiment from Perfect Punches, which happens to be 40% off when you order online!  Woohoo….and it is an extremely versatile set, too!  (You can always order online from me---just click on the catalog icon on the right!)  I used some yummy Spice Cake paper as well, and made a little flower with coordinating colors with my Boho Blossom punch and an In Color brad—sweet! 


I hope you’ll play along with all the other monkeys!  Check out their blog here!

  1. I love your card, LeAnne! Love the mix of patterns from the Spice Cake DSP package paired with polka dot ribbon! Your punched flower embellishment is the perfect finishing touch too! You've inspired me to get out this stamp set and ink it up again!

  2. I looked, but since you know me, you'll know my question is: WHERE are the Perfect Punches??

  3. I love how all of the little elements combine to make such a cute card - the paper button, twine, layers of punched flowers, designer brad.... Lovely job! Thanks for being our Guest Designer this week at A La Card Monkey!

  4. Beautiful! but I really LOVE my Thanksgiving Card. It is adorable! Thanks you so much.

  5. Beautiful card, LeAnne! I will miss this DSP when it is gone :(

  6. This is very beautiful. I love that top DSP and the way you brought the colors into play.

    Love and hugs, Martha

  7. Really beautiful card, I love your flow of DP's and your wonderful ribbon and embellishments :)
