Jungle Friends

Hello friends,

I hope you are all doing well. Today’s post is about the new challenge at Double D hosted by Team Diane. The theme for this challenge is “It’s A Jungle Out DD_JungleThere” – so let’s see something to do with a jungle. For more information about the challenge and the lovely prize visit the Double D Challenge blog.

For my card I used  two little monkeys as focal point. They are so adorable and it was great fun to put all the die cut parts together to let them come to life. Some die cut leaves and colorful flowers on a pretty floral background give a “jungle” feel to the card. I added the swinging monkeys with mirror tape for dimension. To finish off I added a “Happy birthday” sentiment. Hope you like my take on the challenge.

I entered my card in the following challenges:

  • Scrapy Land Challenges #119 (ends 08/28)- Anything Goes with a die cut from a brand that Scrapy Land sells (Dies: PoppyStamps die “Weeping Willow Branch” (Style 2024) — Sizzix Thinlits die set (Tim Holtz Alterations) “Funky Florals #3” (662702) — Sizzix Thinlits die set (Tim Holtz Alterations) “Funky Florals #1” (662700)
