Swinging cupcake

I have a double challenge card for you today. I used Taylors cupcake challenge 28 and Heathers color challenge. I left off the soft sky from Heather colors b/c I have a hard time with 4 colors but I loved how the turquoise, rust, and choc chip looked together!

I used this cute monkey image from H&Ms Wild birthday wishes
and since hes holding a cupcake it fit perfectly for Taylors cupcake challenge. I colored the monkey using the gamsol magic technique and then outlined in copic cool gray no.1 marker. I used the white gel pen to go over his eyes b/c I colored them in. I also added diamond stickles to the icing of the cupcake. I added 3 ribbon strips to the image using choc chip and turquiose grosgrain. I cut a 2" and a 1 1/2" circle with my fiskars circles and layered the sentiment punched with SU large oval. Both the oval and circle layers are popped up. My card base is 6 1/2 x 7 folded in half so it measures 6 1/2 x 3 1/2. Hope you have a great weekend!
