Rockin' in the Jungle

     I went back to a 2015 sketch for this card. What a fun stamp set this is! It is "Jungle Vibes" from My Favorite Things. I let the sketch and this Echo Park patterned paper drive the making of this card. I color-match Copics to color the money and tree.

     I did try something kind of new here. I used Gina K's new card stock color - Skeleton Leaves. The fun part is that I stamped and colored the images on this paper. It gave a wonderful antiqued feel. It reminds me of the illustrations in an old Dick and Jane text book. This card looks like a relic from the 1960's.

     For the inside of the card, I repeated the paper and musical notes, but used a different image. Can you see the mistake I made on the sentiment? I decided to leave it; as is. In order to fix it, I would have had to take the whole inside of the card apart. I think my nephew will get the idea of what was intended.
