XOXO

Hello!  This is Sukie and today I'm sharing a project for my guest designer post.  I had so much fun creating this sweet card with the new Valentine's dies.
The Swinging Monkey was the focal point of my card.  Once I put him together, I added an extra heart to his belly for a whimsical look.  The sentiment was cut from the Valentine Phrase & More die set and the grass was cut from the Grass with Cattails die.  I simply trimmed off the cattails.  All of the die cuts were inked on the edges for some depth and dimension.
I wanted to create a fence for the background of my card so I simply cut strips of paper with my paper trimmer.  Two smaller strips were cut to be used horizontally on the fence.  The paper strips were inked on the edges.
I layered them together along the solid brown background.  Varying the sizes of the strips gives the fence a more natural appearance.
To finish off the fence, I added some bling stickers along each of the "posts" and adhered the grass along the bottom edge.
Nest, I added the sentiment at the top of the fence and then adhered the branch directly below ensuring the sweet monkey would fit perfectly.
Here are the dies I used on my card available here:
