"Monkey Man" Happy Birthday!

Hi everyone! Today I am here to share a very special card with you. On Sunday my youngest son will turn six years old. Oh goodness, where has that time gone?!! I wanted to do a very fun, bright and cheerful card for him. I call Jonathan and my little "monkey man" so this stamp from Stampendous was just perfect! I used papers from Lime Twist's Fly a Kite 6x6 paper pad. My coordinating colors are Hawaiian shores, Pumpkin Pie, Pure Poppy and some green textured card stock from Bazzil. I stamped the image on watercolor paper and used my aqua painters and watercolor pencils to give him a little color. As you can see, I have started to list the products used for each card I post. If you click on the picture of an item, it will take you to a location where you can purchase the item if you are interested. That's all for me today! Enjoy your weekend, and I'll see you all on Monday!

Challenges for today's card:

4 Crafty Chicks: Paper Piercing
Art Impressions Stamp Challenge: Card for a Young Boy
Charisma Cardz: Anything Goes
Cute Card Thursday: Sketch
Shelly's Images: Tic Tac Toe (I chose the middle line: Twine, Free, Punches)
