A Card for Pages In Time challenges

This is one of those ten minute cards that took a tad bit longer to complete. First, after searching the internet sites for freebie image of a monkey, I discovered I had one in my stash from an image swap I did eons ago. This is a Stampendous image. Second, I took some time coloring it as I hadn't used my Copics in quite some time. Third, I decided to find a flower center and scrounged around until I came upon this Heidi Grace chipboard set that just happened to have the perfect center in both color and size. I had recently purchased some pastel cards on sale so I pulled out a yellow one. I added the patterned paper left over from a layout that I made at least a year ago---and finished with some Creative Cafe felt loop trim. I love that I used 4 old things in my stash! Now my description of the night's events does sound like it should have taken only ten minutes or so. But anyone who knows how I work, knows better than that!

Challenges from the Pages In Time Design Team:
Andrea: July Color Challenge to use one of her posted June color combos: I chose the brown, yellow, blue, green combo as that matched perfectly the patterned paper.
Marie: July Card Challenge
