Hang in there

Hi all! Here is my card using two challenges today. They worked really well together, so it was easy to combine them.

At Less is more it is lucky dip week and they want us to create something "down under" in honor of guest designer Kylie who is from Australia.

At the Friday Mashup they want us to use a monkey or zoo animal. Well, I dug through all my stamps and finally found the set I was looking for from the former Angel Company called Wild Animals.

The sentiment is also from TAC but from another set entirely, but it goes very well with this. I did fussy cut the monkey out as he is originally on a tag.

Leaves colored with Copic markers using G93 and G99. Monkey is done using E30, E31, E35 and E37. I also cut up some foam tape and adhered it to the back so that I could pop him up.

ETA: entering this into SSS anything goes Wednesday challenge.
ETA: entering this into the Crazy 4 Challenges down under challenge.

That is it for today. Thanks for dropping in!
