August Release Project Parade: Day One
Posted by Jen del Muro
My friend, Susan, created a super fun card with a spinning monkey a little while back and I just got an order for a girl's birthday card using a monkey. I called Susan up and asked if she minded if I copied her for the Project Parade, since a certain 7.5 month old has been beating the creativity out of me (yep, I said that out loud!). This is what I came up...
Detail shot of a wild birthday monkey...
The new set that I used is BIRTHDAY BASH and the previously released set, LOVE MONKEY. Both are playful and fun and the images work well together. I stamped the balloons slightly off the page. We'll say that was completely on purpose and wasn't an accident that worked in my favor...that's my story and I'm sticking to it! Both the monkey and the balloons look great paper pieced. I thought it would be a little much if I did both, so I just stuck with the balloons. All in all, it's a fun and simple card that I hope will be the perfect one for the little girl it's made for.
