OCC and Saturday Sketch

Good Morning!
Still suffering from this stinkin' cold but I'm hoping by the end of the weekend I'll be good as new!
This is my first post for today....another one will follow in a few hours ;)
My first card is for Lauren's Saturday Sketch!
She always has such a clean sketch and I can't help but keep my cards simple and limit my layers when I do them.
Here I have used this cute monkey stamp from Stampendous and the sentiment is from AmyR's Wedding Sentiments that you can get at All That Scraps.
Check out what the Saturday Sketch girls have done:
Stamps: Stampendous Monkeys, AmyR Wedding Sentiments; Cardstock: Kraft, Pretty in Pink, Regal Rose, Choc Chip, White and American Crafts DP; Ink: Memento Black; Accessories: Copics, Scalloped edge punch, Martha flower punch, Heart punch, Large oval punch, Rhinestones, Mat pack and Paper piercer, Dimensionals
Today's Our Creative Corner Challenge is an Inspiration Challenge. You were to be inspired by something like ribbon, buttons, DP, embellishments....you get the idea :)
My inspiration was this cool American Crafts DP and matching ribbon! I ♥ American Crafts dp!
I used Taylor's Sketch #54 for my layout. The stamps are from the SASI which you can get HERE. The umbrella and beach ball are popped up on dimensionals.
Would you like to see what the other girls have done for their card?
Stamps: SASI Year of Sweets 2 and Year of Sweet Sentiments; Cardstock: Real Red, White and American Crafts DP; Inks: Memento Black; Accessories: Copics, Paper piercer, Circle Punches, Scalloped Circle AC ribbon, Dimensionals, Stardust Gel Pen
Thanks for stopping by today!
Be sure to stop back later to see another card!
