BBTB2-Challenge/Life's A Beach-Leaf

Good Morning, it is Monday, must be time for the BBTB2 Challenge. Our challenge was to use the leaf1 from Cricut cartridge "Life's A Beach. Please also check out the other amazing creations using this icon by my Design Team Sisters.
This card is 5"X7". The background mat was computer generated. The mat for the monkey was created using a background stamp by "StampinUp". The monkey was cut from Cricut cartridge "Paisley". The photo corners are by Cuttlebug, I cut them twice, once in black and once in red, then used the negative red pieces to fill in. Small hand punch hearts also at each corner. The monkey dangles from the "Life's A Beach" leaf1. A coloring was done with Copic markers and the Copic Airbrush System. A piece of decorative ribbon on the right side because it is so heavy on the left side.
My inspiration came from a NatGeo documentary - Wild Kingdom - The Western Ghats in India.

WOW, Sandi. This is too flippin' (no pun intended) cute how you added the monkey upside down. Love the Monkey Business sentiment all the way around.
