Today I'm playing along with {FRESHLY MADE SKETCHES} as they celebrate their 200th sketch challenge!  There's some awesome prizes and some fabulous inspiration pieces from a bunch of talented designers.  :)

I grabbed my latest purchase from REVERSE CONFETTI and got to work:

Hello, cheeky monkey!

I stamped all of the bits from the "MONKEY BUSINESS" stamp set onto watercolor paper, watercolored them with Distress Ink markers, and die cut them out with the matching "MONKEY BUSINESS CONFETTI CUTS" dies.  The middle panel is from the "DOCUMENTED CONFETTI CUTS" set.

I am in love.  This little monkey dude will probably be finding his way onto a lot of my projects, and the balloons and stack of presents will fit onto any birthday card!

There's a few more hours to play along... who needs sleep?  Go get crafty! :)

Thanks for visiting!
