Curious George - Inspired By A Book - Craft Challenge

Happy Thursday nearly time for our 1st bank Holiday of May wow May already where is this year going. It will be Christmas before we know it. Did you join in with Crafts Christmas challenge we had some fabulous entries. Well as it is Thursday it must be time for a new challenge at CRAFT and what do we have for you to play a long with.
well I am not one of those people that you find with their nose in a Book so this one is a challenge for me. Think it is something that is very important and I have always made sure that children read from a very early age and have always read to them as soon as they could understand.
So what Book did I pick. Well it had to be a childs book didnt it
"This is George. He lived in Africa. he was a good little monkey, and always very curious."
 With these words, H.A. and Margret Rey introduced the world to Curious George

We are sponsored by this week
we where also allowed to play with some images from our Star of the Month sponsor All Dressed Up!
So I picked this fab image from All Dressed Up called
Birthday Monkey available HERE
I have kind of gone with a Monochrome colour theme 
Image is coloured with Promarkers
DP is A piece of very old |My Minds Eye and a scrap of Falling Leaf craft sensations
Some ribbon and faux stitching.
The corners have been rounded with a Xcut corner punch.
lots of matting with brown and Kraft coloured card.
Well now you have seen mind what book will inspire you cant wait to see.
Why not pop along to the challenge blog and see what has inspired the rest of the team.
Thanks for popping by. Please come back a little later as I have my 2nd post for Julia Spiri stamps.
I would like to enter this card into the following challenges
