Birthday Monkeys!

I've used another neglected stamp on today's card...this one is 'Birthday Monkeys' from Stampavie. I coloured them using watercolour pencils, then added Glossy Accents to the balloons. The papers are from the 'Boo to You!' collection by My Mind's Eye...I distressed the edges, then added faux stitching using my CutterBee Bug and a white gel pen. The stars were cut using Nesties, and the sentiment is from the 'Sending Sunshine' set by Simon Says Stamp.


Here's a close-up of the Glossy Accents on the balloons:
