Monkey House

This card was made for a little boy who likes to announce "Cheeky Monkey is here" so thought immediately of him.
This stamped image is from Bazoo - Cheeky Monkey. I used copics to colour him in and a die by Xcut - ornate frame. I have only just got this die and love the effect it gives. The stamp has various different wording to put in the sign but I went with the Happy Birthday.

The backing paper is from an old magazine - it had a jungle theme section so went very well. I used a spellbinders circle die and cut a number 3 out of orange card. I distressed the edges of both dies with VersaMagic chalk inks. I finished the card with sticky gems in the corners. I would like to enter this in the following challenges -
