Banana Split Sunday - Pattern Frenzy

Good Morning!

I don't know about you, but this time of the year is just crazy around my house! Our last day of school was Friday - woo hoo!

Today is Banana Split Sunday on the 2RedBananas blog. The challenge for this week is "Pattern Frenzy" and the requirement is to use at least 3 different patterned papers on your project.

I LOVE patterened papers. I love the 'texture' they give to colors. I have also come to realize that "Heartfelt Friends" is one of my go-to stamp sets when I'm doing an "I love you" card. I just love these little critters and how sweet they all are.

So, for this card I used Imaginisce's 'Baby Powder' line, such sweet colors. I also used Fantasy Fiber to piece the heart that the monkey is holding on to. I LOVE that stuff :)

Jump on over to the 2RedBananas blog to see more examples of the challenge made by our design team and then you jump in and play as well!

Stamps: Heartfelt Friends, Snowman Love - 2RedBananas
Other: Nesties Lables Three, Fantasy Fiber - Fairy Wings, May Arts velvet ribbon, pop dots, buttons, twine, prismacolor pencils and mineral spirits, Inkssentials white pen

Our quote for the day: "Some people, no matter how old they get, never lose their beauty—they merely move it from their faces into their hearts. "
— Martin Buxbaum

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a wonderful day!

What a cute little monkey. I like him with that pink paper and flower buttons.

This is such a sweet card! I love the colors. How do you get the monkey's tail to hang off like that? It looks like you used a Nestie, but how do you do it without cutting off the tail? Or is the monkey trimmed and then stuck on the mat?

Aww..what a sweet card this is! I love that monkey, and I'm so impressed with how you managed to use Fantasy Fiber for the heart (looks like it was really tricky!). Love the pink, the shell buttons, and all your patterned papers are so pretty.
