Happy Birthday Monkey!

Today I wanted to share my first card using Polka Dot Orchard's Monkey Mail package.  This is a huge digital set that includes 19 images and 18 sentiments!  It's designed by PDO Artist Kimberly Wiener.

I especially wanted to do a slimline card so I could try out one of the Pink Fresh Edgers.

After positioning the different elements (Monkey, hat, kite, string, and sentiment) within 4" x 8", I printed my card design on Neenah 110# card stock.  I used Copic markers for coloring which are referenced below.  

I die cut the right side of the image, then made a coordinating red card base that I cut at  ~ 4" x 8" (side fold).   Next, I used Quick Quotes Chalking Ink, a brush and a cloud stencil to make the puffy blue clouds.  To finish, I adhered the colored image to the card base.

Thank you for stopping by today.  I enjoy sharing my work with you and invite you to “Follow” my blog and to visit my site ~ “Not JustScraps” on Facebook ~ where you can purchase my cards and other crafting items.
