This is my very first card from the monkey business set made in a shadow box card, which I am so excited about. The cardstock is very vanilla, I used banana tree wallpaper sample as my background (sorry it got a little dark in the shadow box part - but really cute). Stamped the monkeys in close to cocoa and cut them out, the bananas are so saffron and cut them out, then used black ink for details. The vines stamped on the front of the card are in old olive, then cut out, the bottom half of the front is cut with oval coluzzle, I sponged the front with old olive. The monkeys and bananas are attached with dimensionals. The brads are pewter.
I am pleased with the card and hope you enjoy it.
Thanks for looking.
