Card challenge: Pink, blue & brown

I hosted a Stampin Up! card party on Saturday. When I sat down to make my thank you cards on Sunday, I looked online for a challenge first for inspiration. I couldn't find one so I just made a card all by myself - no challenge or color themes. I wanted to use my monkey stamp and happy colors so I just.made.this!!!
What was super ironic is that TODAY I saw this challenge on Annabelle Stamps. Pink, blue and brown were the color theme! Crazy or what?! So now I get to play along and maybe win a prize after all!!

The stamp is a Stampendous Changito monkey stamp. I stamped it in brown then colored with Crayola colored pencils. The thank you stamp is SU! as is the pearl and pink "regal rose" paper. I love how the paper and ink match PERFECTLY!
I used a piercing tool to make little markings on the edge of the pink paper too.
Finished with a little blue bow and voila.
An unexpected card challenge entry. Thanks Annabelle!!
