I had alot of fun making this card for a very special someone's 70th birthday! I used the cutest monkey image from Meljen's Designs and some free birthday digi's I've accumulated. I colored all the images with my copics and cut the monkey image out with a spellbinder die. I used some red and gold cardstock - I embossed the red with a birthday folder and then used a corner slot punch so I could insert the embossed red cardstock into the gold cardstock. I used pop dots on the monkey, the balloons and the present for dimmension. Lastly, I used my Gelly Roll Pens to add a little bling, some baker's twine to give my birthday monkey a bow and some Fired Brick distress ink from Ranger around the edges of the images, just because that's what I do :)
Happy Birthday Guy! I'm so lucky to have you and Linda in my life and so happy you are on the road to a healthy recovery!!!!
