Gerda Steiner April Challenge - Hang in there Monkey

Hello, crafty friends! I'm stopping by today to share a recent creation of mine which was inspired by an April image for Gerda Steiner's Monthly Progressive Challenge. When I first saw this little monkey hanging on the tree, I could not decide what kind of card I should create to make it to stand out from all other cards which are going to be submitted for this months challenge. I'd been thinking of creating a scene with this cutie flying with balloons or, maybe, just left him hanging on a tree, but wasn't truly satisfied with those ideas. I'd been wondering of what scene to come up with until I saw a card on the Internet with just a sentiment on it "To Infinity And Beyond". And then it struck me what kind of card I needed to create for this challenge. So here is what I came up with:

I hope you've liked today's card! Have a nice day and thanks for stopping by!
