Going Bananas!!

Hello!
This is my final card of my 'cultural' set and I kept it a fun and whimsical one!  The monkey is a new Alota image I received in the mail - isn't he adorable!!  The banana skins and sentiment are images I received from my dear friend Rachel - thanks so much (I think I might just have to get them now to go with this monkey)!!  The corner leaf stamp is Magnolia which I believe I received last summer in their Summer Club package - this is the first time I've inked it up and I love how it works with this card.  I coloured everything with copics, trimmed all the images out and popped the monkey and sentiment up on pop dots to add some dimension to the card.  The back panel is plain brown kraft cardstock which I distressed the edges and ran through the cb embossing folder 'floral screen'.
This is a quick view of the inside - kept it very simple and just stamped the leaf corner and coloured it in.  The sentiment is from Gina K.  I didn't have very much time to complete this card so given the time restraints I'm quite pleased with the final result!  My boys loved it - they thought it was a very cool card!  :)  
Thanks for coming by and paying me a visit today - I love to see you here and especially love to read your comments!  Please let me know that you've come as I always love to return the favour and visit your blog - it's so thrilling to me to check out new blogs and see new talent!
Hugs,
Danielle x

I love the way you did this card. Something very different. Great idea! I also love how you finished the inside of the card. We always tend to forget about the inside of the card! I'm going to start doing that. Thank-you for the inspiration!

Ooh, this is too cute! I love the way you combined products you had from different companies. That is so hard for me to do. I think I'm not organized enough to see all the choices I have available to me. lol
