Monkey Birthday

I'm still in Melbourne, so I've scheduled this post!  :)  I've made this card for my nephew's birthday this week.  I know it seems like I have all these nieces and nephews, but really, I only have three - it's just their birthdays are all within two weeks of each other!  I was aiming to make this with this week's SCS sketch challenge, but of course didn't have the sketch with me and mixed up the panels a bit!  Ooops!  I've used the JustRite April Release - Let's Celebrate - for the monkey centre and border and some brand new Kaisercraft DSP that I picked up the other day.  Don't you love that grass paper ---- it's FLOCKED!!!  Cool!!!!  :)

I started with a base of green bazzill, layered with white and some Kaisercraft Jungle Bug DSP.  The next panel is more white - punched on one side with the MS Embossed Zig Zag punch and topped with more Jungle Bug.  Next panel is more white and more Jungle Bug.  The Monkey centre and border are from JustRite's Let's Celebrate stamp set and has been stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black and coloured with Copics (E31, E33, E35, R20, Y11, Y21, YR23, 0) and I've added some Gold Spica to the stars.  It's been cut out with Square Nestabilities and matted with Pumpkin Pie cut with the matching scallop nestabilities and all popped up on foam tape.  To finish I added some Emerald Mini Sprinkles to the orange panel.

Stamps - Let's Celebrate (JustRite)
Paper - Green Bazzill, White, X-Press It Blending Card, Pumpkin Pie, Kaisercraft Jungle Bug DSP
Ink - Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories - Large Square and Scallop Square Nestabilities, Copics, MS Zig Zag Punch, Emerald Mini Sprinkles, Foam Tape.

That's all for today, I'll be back in a couple of days with some pics from Copic Certification in Melbourne!!!  :)  Thanks for visiting!!
