Jungle Birthday

Welcome to the jungle! This monkey is celebrating his Birthday and everyone is coming. Some of the critters are bringing gifts for him. I had a lot of fun making this card. It is my first time using the center picture window set. It has been on my wish list for a very long time and last week I decided to get it. It’s surprisingly easy to use and even though it’s small, you can fit a lot of images on there!

I stamped and colored everything the night before. I didn’t put any white gel pen accents on there yet, because I wanted to see how it was placed on the card first. I didn’t use a lot of cardstock for this card, because I decided to ink blend the front as well as the back of the die cut panel. For the sentiment I went with a strip of black licorice cardstock on the front, because the inside of the card was already full.
