Monkey Challenge 108


Those sweet chicas over at A La Card Monkey asked me to be their guest designer this week!  I always look forward to playing with them!  Check out this fun photo inspiration:

Monkey108 Girly-001

Yes, the little girl is standing on an alligator!  What a hoot!  Well, the challenge is “girly”, and the photo is vintage, so I pulled out some vintage sewing goodies from my stash to make my girly card:

Monkey 108-LeAnne

I used a wide & varied assortment of products here!!!  Normally when I do vintage, I do sepia tones or lighter shades.  The Miss America Pearls image is an actual button card from my MIL’s stash, as is the Woolco Needle Pack, and they gave me the inspiration to use the brighter shades. The other images are from paper packs, embossed or stamped.  I added some stitching and lace from my stash to the DP from Material Girl by Cosmo Cricket:








Here’s the inside:


Remember, if you have any questions, shoot me an email!  I hope you have some time to play with Shirley and Terry over at the Card Monkey and share your vintage girly creation!
