Happy Monkeyversary!

Here's a fun little anniversary card for a special someone. I used the sock monkey set and colored most of the monkey using my barely banana, creamy caramel and real red stampin' write markers. I paper pieced the body of the monkey using some bella rose designer series paper, but I used my stampin' write marker to turn the polka dots from pink pirouette to real red. I also stamped the heart on real red card stock and trimmed it out, stamping "all my love" inside with my everyday flexible phrases set. I popped the heart up on a dimensional and sponged the edges of the whisper white card stock with barely banana and chocolate chip ink, before adding a creamy caramel mat.

I used the itty bitty backgrounds stamp set and barely banana ink to stamp a background on a barely banana mat. The dotted background echoes the pattern on the monkey's paper pieced body. I stamped the Happy Anniversary greeting on the mat with chocolate chip ink. I added some double stitched chocolate chip ribbon with a layer of the 5/8" real red grosgrain ribbon on top. Then I attached the monkey image over the ribbons with dimensionals. I threaded the holes of three creamy caramel square buttons with silk thread and attached them over the ribbon with mini glue dots.

Did I mention that I have fallen head over heels with the sock monkey set? Paired up with the accessory set, there's just nothing this little monkey can't do! He is just too cute!

Oh my gosh - this is so cute! The stitched ribbon and those adorable buttons REALLY go perfectly with a "sock" monkey. Brilliant!
