So I must be in a nostalgic mood lately as my mind seems to drift back to when I was a kid. Must be all this cutting, and coloring, and gluing...maybe that's why we all love paper crafting so much...it makes us feel like kids again!  
How many of you remember "A Barrel Full of Monkeys" ? Well this is where my mind went as came up with the design for this cute little card ! And can you believe it...more orange paper ! Go figure ! Oh, and I tried some major doodling here, it was fun :)

Details : 
Base card is 9 1/4 x 4 fits into a legal size envelope
Layer 1 is cut at 9 x 3 3/4, MS punch on all 4 corners, CAC cart
Monkeys and all layers cut at 2 1/4 with PK faces
Vine cut twice at 4 1/2, CAC cart
Barrel cut at 3 inches from Paper Doll Dress Up cart 
Sentiment cut at 2 inches, from CAC cart
extras : hemp, eyelets, black and white doodling
Pin It!
