Centre-step Monkey for Sarah

Today, I have a cute little project to share. One of Cara's BFF's loves monkeys, so I wanted to make her a monkey themed birthday card. I found these cute punch monkeys by Dawn Olchevske & decided to make a girly version. This is the card I came up with:
I used textured card for the monkey face & added a girly flower, made with the boho blossoms punch, flower brad & rhinestone. You can see her better in this pic.
As you can see, I'm still loving the centre-step card. I decorated this one with some pretty DSPs from the Cheerful Treat hostess pack. The sentiment is also from a current hostess set. I carried the monkey theme to the back of the card, with some cheeky monkeys from Fox & Friends
I'm now realising how much of what I've used is retiring in just a few days. It's sad to say goodbye to many of these lovely goodies, but I'm super excited about so much in our new Annual & Holiday Catalogues.....which start this Saturday...eeeeeeeee! As usual, I've listed the supplies used on this card below & I've also noted if they're retiring, so if there's anything you need, please contact me ASAP & no later than Thursday, so you don't miss out.
Cara's friend loved her monkey card, so hope you do too. Thanks very much for visiting & a special extra thanks to everyone who takes the time to leave a comment too.
Until next time, inky wishes
Di

This is fabulous Di! So bright and fun, I'm not surprised the recipient loved it too!

Is the panel to write just on the reverse side? What a great idea!

Best wishes...
