{The Cat's Pajamas Sneak Peek} Hang in There

It's Day 6 of The Cat's Pajamas previews. Today we are showcasing the Hang in There set.

The sock monkey is making a return to the TCP character lineup. This set features both fun and serious type sentiments. I wanted to use bright, fun colors so I went back to some older and favorite My Mind's Eye Lime Twist pads. They are pretty much decimated but I do have scraps and a few full sheets from each pad left over. This is a small card so it would still fit in an A2 size envelope. I stamped the image onto the image panel with the balloon portion onto a cloud cut with the Cloud Border CutUps. After coloring with Copic Markers I cut the image out with Spellbinders Nestabilities. I cut the top only of one of the tags using the Luggage CutUps, tied a snippet of ribbon in the tag hole and slipped it in between the mat and the image. Lastly, I added some matted enamel dots which repeated the dots in the two patterned papers.
