Monkey Love

I have made this card for my Aunt and Uncle who's Anniversary is coming up. I have been completely inspired by a card made by Kerry from A Load of Old Pickle (see links list) - thank you for the inspiration Kerry and I hope you don't mind!! I have stamped out 'Changito's Love Balloon' and coloured in with Copic Markers. I have then cut out and mounted to dark red CS and attached this to the base with 3D foam pads. The base has been made by layering up more red CS on to a square white card blank then adding Doodlebug white embossed card on top after wrapping a piece of black organza ribbon around first. I have then cut out an oval tag using a QK die and stamped the greeting on and tied to the ribbon. 6 gem stones added to finish.

STAMPS: Stampendous, Papertrey Ink. INK: Airondack Pitch Black. CS: Anita's, Papermania, Doodlebug Designs. ACCESSORIES: Organza ribbon by Ribbon Oasis, Dog Tag die by QuicKutz, Papermania Adhesive Gems.
