Another High Hopes Challenge #17


I decided to give this challenge another go with my other High Hopes stamp - I think this little guy is sooo cute! I'm always calling my kids "cheeky monkey" so maybe that's why it grabbed my attention.
The colours I've used this time are Old Olive and Pumpkin Pie - a couple of my favourites. I found this tree at a local scrapbooking shop and thought it was the perfect embellishment - although I did have to trim off a few branches to make it fit the space...

AWWWWW, Debbie... I am amazed by your card! The ribbon just tops it off so nicely on the bottom of the tree and the coloring is perfect. Great lay-out... Smiles!! :)
