Dustin Pike Challenge Feb.05-What FUN!

I've always been attracted to these curious little dragons and monkeys without really knowing that they were from Dustin Pike!  I find them fascinating and great for kids cards-they make you go awwww!  A great moderator on ScrapbookPlace suggested blog sites where members could participate in challenges offered up by many great artists.   Needless to say I had a great big smile on my face when I left DP's site! .  
I colored in the Digi Image of the Monkey with Copic markers, matted him in red and used popdots to raise him up.  For the 2 horizontal bars, I cut 2 "tree" limbs out of wood like paper and then wrapped them with silk vine ribbon, elevated them with pop dots.  For the area shown in pink, I had this great jungle paper that really gives the card some depth.  In the inside, there is a red liner with black "I Love You's" scripted all over it and a white accent with "Happy Valentine's Day" stamped on it.  This will be going to my Grandson for the Big Day!  I hope you like it-I had fun participating in the Challenge!
