Sketch Saturday meets Charisma Cardz

I'm combining challenges again...the fab Sketch Saturday sketch and the 'Going Dotty' theme of the Charisma Cardz Challenge. I rotated the sketch to fit my 'Birthday Monkeys' stamp (by Rachelle Anne Miller for Stampavie), and was inspired by the balloons on the image to get out a background stamp (by Funstamps) that I've had for ages, but neglected. I watercoloured the background to match the monkey image, and used plain card, in co-ordinating colours for the rest of the background, using my Cuttlebug 'Spots & Dots' and 'Swiss Dots' folders for texture. The stars were cut from scraps of the same card, using Nestie dies, and then embossed with the same folders, and also the 'Tiny Bubbles' one. The ribbon is from Poppicrafts.
