Birthday Wishes

Good morning!  It's Tuesday so that means we have another fun sketch from the girls at Tuesday Morning Sketches; click here for more details.

I went with a birthday card...I couldn't resist this cute, little monkey!  The image is colored with pencils; the frosting, flame, and party hat are accented with glitter.  I kept it simple and embellished with a single candle and a snippet of ribbon.

Image: Bugaboo Digital Stamp
Sentiment: SU! So Happy For You
Ink: Printer, Sakura Black Gel Pen
Paper: PTI Stamper's Select, Berry Sorbet, and Dark Chocolate, American Crafts DP
Embellies: Cake Mate Candle, SU! Chocolate Chip Grosgrain Ribbon, Martha Stewart Crystal Fine Glitter (frosting), Doodlebug Glitter (flame), and Barbara Trombley's Art Glitter in "Pink Smoothie" (party hat)
Extras: Prismas/Crayolas/Goo Gone, Spellbinder's Nestabilities, The Paper Studio Sticky Doos

You can check out the rest of the DT creations here.  Why not play along with this fun sketch?  I'd love to see your take!

I am also entering my card in the following challenges:

Chocolate, Coffee, and Cards: Sweet Treats
Dream Valley Challenges: Celebrations
Eureka Stamps: Animals
Totally Papercrafts: For a Child

Thanks for stopping by!

Well if you are gonna have a monkey - you might as well feed him cake. But since you have two monkeys - you need one more cake!! Really cute card.
