Monkey Birthday Frame

So this card was a nightmare from start to finish!! It is for my cousin who was 13 last week. So I was going to put a 13 on the card somewhere then my mum informs me that maybe he isn't 13!! Well I didn't know what to do then, add it on and make a terrible mistake if he isn't 13? So I left it off. I then didn't know what to do for him, I know he likes football but I did that last year, oh the stress of it!! Then I remembered that Natalie kindly gave me a couple of these monkey images a while back (thank you so much Natalie!) so went with one of these. I coloured it in with watercolour pencils and mounted to blue CS, this was then mounted to the base with 3D foam pads. The base has been made by layering brown CS on to a white card blank and adding a strip of darker brown down the edge and adding 3 blue brads.

STAMPS: Stampendous. CS: Craftwork Cards, Doodlebug Designs. ACCESSORIES: Papermania brads.
