Paper Smooches SPARKS-Hang in There

This week's Paper Smooches SPARKS challenge is an Anything Goes challenge.  I turned to some oldies but goodies in my Paper Smooches collection for this fun card.

Hang in There card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps and dies from Paper SmoochesThe monkey is from the Smoocheroos set.  I colored him with Copic markers, then cut him out and adhered him to a "branch" die cut with one of the Trees 1 dies.  The branch is set on a grid patterned paper panel with a strip of pale green torn cardstock "grass" along the bottom.  I used a piece of an orange circle to make a sun to put in the upper right corner of the card.  I stamped the "hang in there" sentiment from the Hang Ups set on the patterned paper in black ink, then added a few yellow sequins for a fun sparkle.

Don’t miss what the rest of the SPARKS team has created this week. Here’s where to find them:
