Another birthday?

Another monkey! I just can't get enough of this guy. As soon as I realized I needed a birthday card I immediately reached for Sock Monkey. I stamped the Sock Monkey in Jet Black StazOn on Whisper White. I then colored him in with my Creamy Caramel marker and Rose Red marker. I stamped the flag in his hand then colored the flag in with my Rose Red marker. I stamped the M from Euphoria Alphabet (retired) on my flag, but I smudged it. My solution was to stamp the flag on a piece of Rose Red Prints DSP (retired), stamp the M, cut it out and adhere it over my other flag. Problem solved. I layered my monkey on a piece of Basic Black that I scalloped the edge of with my Scallop border punch. I then scalloped the edge of my card and layered a piece of Rose Red underneath the flap. I added a piece of Basic Black 1/4" grosgrain ribbon around my card, put my monkey on top, stamped my sentiment inside (along with a cupcake), stamped the birthday hat on the envelope and colored it in with my Rose Red marker. Tomorrow I will give this card to one of my co-workers. I hope she likes it.
