Friday Mashup--Kids and Bright Colors

Happy Friday! Its another great challenge from The Friday Mashup blog and this week our challenge is issued by Lesley, and it was a bit of a toughie for me! You can make a card for a child, make a card using the colors Real Red, Daffodil Delight, Tempting Turquoise and Pacific Point, or you can MASHUP the challenges and make a childs card incorporating those colors.

I really dont make cards for kids that often, and while I do love 3 of the 4 colors given I dont combine them that often, so I had to think about this challenge a bit. Finally I pulled out the Sock Monkey set(which is on the newly released SU retiring list, so if you want it you have until June 30 to get it!) and started on a simple card. I wanted to stick with simple because kids dont like overwhelming things, but they do like bright colors, shapes and usually a monkey is a safe bet for smiles :) I didnt realize it but I didnt have any Tempting Turquoise paper(oops!) so I incorporated that color by coloring an outfit on the monkey!

Supplies used(all supplies SU unless otherwise noted):
Stamps: Sock Money, Print Pattern
Paper: Pacific Point, Real Red, Daffodil Delight, Whisper White
Ink: Black StazOn, Tempting Turquoise, Real Red, Daffodil Delight, Pacific Point, Creamy Caramel
Accessories: Sizzix Circles Diecuts, Dazzling Diamonds, sponge, dimensionals, black twine
