I can hardly believe that my grandson is a year old!  Here is his card for the big day.

The monkey is a cupcake topper that was saved from a baby shower I attended a couple of month’s ago.  A small cut was made in the cardstock, and the little stem was inserted and taped down on the underside to hold it in place.

CAS on Sunday is having a fun “Sparkle and Shimmer” challenge to use glitter.  This card is playing along in the challenge, as this ever so dazzling designer paper has lots of sparkle already built-in.

There are a couple of other challenges, too, that Little Monkey is playing in.  They are the Papertake Weekly Challenge “Anything Goes” and the Simon Says Monday Challenge “Five”.  The “five” things I chose to create this card are: Paper, Stamp Set, Ink, Monkey Topper and Rope Twine.

Happy Birthday, Little Monkey!

Stamps: Verve “Birthday Bash”

Papers: PTI Select White and New Leaf; The Paper Studio “Eat Cake” Designer Paper

Inks: Memento Tuxedo Black

Accessories: SU Rope Twine; Wilton Monkey Topper
