In the Wild

This week's new challenge at CD Sunday is In the Wild chosen by Jane.

I made my card for a friend who is monkey mad. She even has one of her own that she sponsors.

For this card I used an image and backing paper from Animal Antics CD from Joanna Sheen. I have had a pile of A5 card and matching envelopes from Craft Creations for ages and it was nice to be able to use one for this card. I just matted the image and bp onto brown cardstock and added a green ribbon, a couple of die cuts and some candy. The recipient was very pleased on Friday when we gave her the card at work along with a voucher so that she can get her very own commemorative paving stone at Monkey World. 

I lined the envelope with the same backing paper just to make it extra special.


  1. Such a fun card Jocelyn! I didn't know Monkey World did the paving stones.
