CCC #104

IMG_5580


Time for a new Cue Card at CASology!

The cue for this week is:



Tell me what kid would love to have a pet monkey!
The monkey image was not hanging from anything, so on his own he seemed out of place on the card. So I stamped him on a circle and then put the brown scallop frame on the circle.  Still looking a bit lost I stamped some greenery at the top of the circle, grounding the monkey image.

1.  One main image--monkey
2.  Lots of open space
3.  Limited layers & embellishments--scallop frame
4.  Quick & easy to recreate

Head on over to CASology today to learn what the 'cue card' means to you, how you can play along and see the all the cards created by the Design Team to inspire you.
