{risque} monkey business

Somehow I neglected to share with you the birthday card I made for my hubby a little while ago.  This was the second card I made using Sketch 33 from Card Patterns.  The monkey theme and the patterned papers here go along with the surprise party invitations and cupcake toppers I'd made.  Not that my hubby cared or even gave a second thought to it, but I thought they should all be coordinating.  ;)

Of course I had to improvise a little to make it even more fun.  So with the help of some colored pencils and glitter pens, Changito was magically transformed into Changito-lita!  ;P  She's so cute, though --I think she looks a bit too sweet...and maybe a bit too be poppin' out of a cake like that.  Just my opinion. 

It looks better in real life, but here's a close-up of all the glorious sparkliness (I do think that's a word nowadays -lol).  

In hindsight, I should've given her some big ol' sparkly earrings and glossy lipstick too!  That may have 'aged' her a bit. lol  Guess I was in too big a hurry that day.  No biggie though.  He loved it and I'm sure none of my crazy thoughts ever crossed his mind. ;)

I hope you're all having a wonderful week!

As always, thanks so much for coming by to visit, and I hope you'll stop by again soon. Until then, many blessings to you!

Changito-lita...I am just cracking UP here LOL...Look at that little bikini top you gave her. Just too fun.
Lipstick and big earrings would have been even funner. Great card never appreciate words like 'co-ordinate' and 'cupcake toppers' and 'matching'.

Oh my goodness! This is fantastic. I'm giggling like a maniac over this card and your post. You are so funny!

I'm sure he loved it as well he should!

Have a wonderful weekend...don't you love the heatwave we are enjoying?
