Barrel Full of Fun - JAI12

This week the team at Just Add Ink have given a wonderful sketch challenge.  There are loads of possibilities with this one!

When I first saw the "Fox & Friends" set being used on US sites, I knew I just had to have it as soon as it arrived here.  All the animals are just so adorable!

Anyway, the monkeys reminded me of the ones from the classic game "a Barrel of Monkeys" (but they are much cuter) so I put a simple pop-up barrel inside the card & lots of linky monkeys.

Here is both the inside & outside of my card (plus another shot of the monkey chain):-

All the monkeys are individually cut out & raised on dimensionals. The sentiments are computer generated.  The barrel was cut using an oval template, then bands were added & it was all chalked for extra dimension.

Edited to add:

The lovely ladies at JAI made this card a top pick, thank you!  Thank you to everyone who left lovely comments!  :)
