Wild Thing

Happy Friday!!! Today I've got a little card for you using this week's Viva la Verve! sketch. It's the last one of the month, so if you haven't started yet, get your stamping shoes on and get with it for a chance to win the next Verve release! To make it easy on you, I've even created a PDF with all of this month's sketches. Check it out on this week's VLV challenge thread, hosted by Sankari!
My card started out with this little monkey from To the Moon.  He's always getting into mischief, so I decided to give him a little grin and a kite tied to his tail.  I stamped him a couple times onto brown paper bag cardstock, then paper pieced him for a little 3D action.  These new papers from the So Cute collection by Prima were just screaming for a monkey card, so I had to use them!  I love the little Wild Thing sentiment in the Swirling Hearts set, so I stamped that on the circle, then decided to use just the "you make my heart sing" portion of the sentiment from our older Wild Thing set.  I trimmed it into a narrow banner and layered it across my woodgrain paper.  Since Sankari designed the sketch, I just had to pull out some liquid pearls for my scallops, and decided to add a few little hand drawn dots around the inner circle as well.  I finished off with some peridot rhinestones from Pizzazz Aplenty, as well as a ribbon, button and some glossy accents on the kite and bug spots.
 
That's all for me today!  I hope you'll play along with Viva la Verve!  I always love seeing everyone's creations!  And for a little eye candy, be sure to check out the next installment of the Baby Love Diva Dare going on over on the Verve Blog! Thanks for stopping by and have a FABULOUS weekend!
