Papertake Weekly Challenge - Guest Designer Card

Woo-hoo...I was so excited to be asked to be a guest designer for the Papertake Weekly Challenge last week...that I went and made my cards for the four challenges I'll be joining them for, all in one afternoon! lol
This week, there's a fab sketch by Dawny...with plenty of room for adding extra embellishments if you feel so inclined. I've kept my card fairly simple, as I decided to use it to make a boy's birthday card...as I don't have may of these 'in stock' at the moment. I've used 'Birthday Monkeys' (by Rachelle Anne Miller for Stampavie), and watercoloured them to match the bright and cheerful '29th Street Market' paper (by My Mind's Eye). I embossed the plain coloured panels using my 'Stars' and 'Spots & Dots' Cuttlebug folders, and added a few small brads in the corners.

Do make sure you pop by the Papertake Weekly Challenge to check out the fabulous creations by the regular design team.
