This is an extra special challenge card for Whimsical Wednesday.
This week both card teams have come together for our challenge, to make get well cards for a very special little boy. Angelo, who is the grandson of Margie from Bella Bug Creations, is going through a very difficult time right now. He underwent brain surgery last week and will begin chemotherapy next week. You can read more about Angelo at this post over at Margie's blog. We hope that you will all join us and make a card for Angelo too.
I decided to use the Create a Critter cartridge for this one. The paper is from DCWV and so is the strip along the bottom. It's a sticker that came with the paper pack.
To dress my monkey up a bit I used some brown flocking powder on the body, glossy accents on the nose, and googly eyes.
I gave him an extra large banana that is also from the same cartridge, but I did have to use my Gypsy to hide the face the banana originally had. I stamped "peel better soon!" from the Pink By Design set called Country Living. The stamp was originally one long phrase and I cut it so it would be easy to stamp in this arrangement instead. I could have also used masking, but I found this easier and as long as you only cut the spaces between the parts that actually stamp it doesn't hurt anything.
I rounded a couple of the corners with a 1/2 setting on my Corner Chomper.
Hopefully it makes him smile :)
Whimsical Wednesday is always a fun and inspirational stop. This week it would be extra special if you would like to participate. Head on over there now to see the rest of the Design Team's creations and to link up your own.
