Baby Monkey Business

Hello crafting people, the card I am Sharing today is ADORABLE, if I may say so myself. lol. I made this card for a couple of challenges: the colour combo from IN{K}spire_me Challenge #234, the sketch from As You See It Challenge #121, and the Friday Mashup Challenge #241 Going Bananas to use zoo animals or fancy folds or mash them up together.
To make this card I used a 5.5 square card base with a fancy fold step up. I then stamped the base with stamps from Gorgeous Grunge, Paper Pumpkin Glittered Greetings, and Hello Lovely in various shades of red and brown. I than added 9 layers of painstakingly hand-cut fringes. I topped off the fringes with chocolate chip bakers twine. I embellished the card with some cut outs made from the fox and friends stamp set and cut with my Silhouette. I added the "sweet baby" banner to tie the whole card together. Here it is again.

 Here are a couple close-ups on the details.


Here is the colour combo, sketch, and theme for this card.
