Monkey Business

Happy Friday!!  It's time for another challenge from Jo's Scrap Shack.  As always, we are now an Anything Goes challenge and our sponsor for this week is Little Blue Button Stamps. 

Here is the card I created:
I made this for a young man at our church that who just turned 18.  It's been fun watching him grow and mature the last couple years and he's turned into a classy young gentleman.  I thought this dressed up little monkey was a fun image to use for his birthday.  The little scalloped piece, the numbers and the white circle were in my bits and pieces stash.  I bought this sentiment set a couple years ago, I believe, and this is the first time I inked them up.  Shame, shame, I know!  But, I think it worked fabulously for celebrating an 18th birthday.

Very cute. At first I wasn't sure about the cutesy image, but then when I I saw it up close (the dapper monkey) I thought, "nothing could be more perfect for a teen boy!" Haha! Thank you for sharing this sweet card at Shopping Our Stash... the recipient will appreciate this!

Such a very cute card. Thank you for joining our previous Challenge and would like to invite you back to our current Challenge at Word Art Wednesday. I would like to leave you with one of the greatest verses in the Scripture from Romans 5:8 which says, "But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us." Have a wonderful day!
