FCCB Challenge #187 - Use An Animal

FCCB Challenge #187
Animal Crakers
Use an Animal and at least 1 Cricut Cut
My Project:
Hello all you FCCB fans!!!  Here with another challenge for you this week - Use An Animal!!!  Any animal of your choice.  I decided on this hilarious little monkey from the Paisley cart.  There are three funny monkeys on this cart and I haven't used one of them - and I don't know why, because they are so much fun!  My paper comes from DCWV Animal Crackers stack and I just love how bright and fun this card turned out to be.  I did draw inspiration from a sketch in the Mojo Monday archives, but made a few changes.  I embossed the monkey with Swiss Dots and popped him up on two thicknesses of foam tape to help him stand out a bit more.  My square mat behind the monkey is popped up on one thickness - so the dimension of this card is great!  My sentiment comes from a Fiskars mini stamp set, which I LOVE!!!  I hope that you will share with us a project that features one of your favorite animals from your Cricut carts and link up over at FCCB this week!!! Thanks for checkin' in!!!
