This is my very first card from the Monkey Business set made in a shadow box, which I am so excited about.
The cardstock is very vanilla, I used banana tree wallpaper for the background (sorry it appears rather dark on the card). The monkeys are stamped in close to cocoa, then cut out. The bananas are stamped in so saffron, the cut out, and black ink detailed.
The vines are stamped on the top card of the car with old olive, and the bottom half of the front is cut out with oval coluzzle, then I took scissors and cut out the vines for added affect. I sponged the front of the card with old olive. The monkeys are attached with dimensionals, as are the bananas.
The brads are pewter.
I am pleased with the card, and hope you enjoy it.
Thanks for looking.

This absolutely the cutest. I don't have his set. I bought it for my daughter because she has two cute little monkey boys. I should have kept for myself. Maybe I can steal it (Oh. I mean borrow it.) from her.
