It's a Jungle out there!!

Hello everyone,
I made a card for last Wednesday's Sketch Challenge on Splitcoast Stampers. Here's the link to the sketch. I know that some of my new blog readers, have never been to Splitcoast. Please go and check it out's the greatest resource ever for card samples, ideas, and information.
The challenge on this card was to have the center panel of this card no wider then 1 1/2 inches. That's really not very big, so I wasn't sure what kind of image I could use. In order to get it to fit, I had to do the out of the box technique...I think it worked great. The monkey image is by High Hopes Rubber Stamps! Make sure you check out their new releases. They're so cute!!

Here's the card details.
Stamps: High Hopes
Paper: Georgia Pacific cs, bazzill basics cs, MME wild asparagus and magnolia dp, unknows dp
Ink: pallette noir black, SU real read, prismacolor pencils & OMS, twinkling h20's
Accessories: fibers, baubles
Techniques: machine stitching

I'll be back with another card soon! Have a great Tuesday!
