Birthday Monkey

Morning all!

Today I'm playing with the Up, Up and Away set from Mama Elephant.  All of their stamps are so awesome for coloring, and I got a ginormous set of Prismacolors from my lovely parents for my birthday which I finally spent time playing with.

The only thing with the prismacolors I have is the box is SO big, I have to hunt for hours to get the right shade.  At some point I need to sit down and sort them all by shade (like the Spectrum Noir pencils which helpfully come pre-sorted!)

I used Gamsol to blend and scattered card stock confetti from the Mama Elephant die strategically, and finished it off with a Mama Elephant bow die cut from DCWV glitter card stock and a heap of glossy accents on the balloons.  The sentiment was embossed in Ranger Fine Gold embossing powder, and it was all popped up onto a 120lb Simon Says Stamp card base matted with patterned paper.

I used some left over confetti to decorate the inside of the card, with a Simon Says Stamp birthday sentiment.

Catch you later!
