blue monkey

This cute monkey is another C.C. Designs newly released image. I wanted to do an out-of-the-box card with him and have the balloon floating out of the main panel, but I noticed that it was already done. So I decided to change his color and make him a blue monkey instead. The buttons are *supposed* to look like balloons with pierced holes for the “strings” but they don’t quite look the way I pictured them in my head. Oh well, they are a cute accent nonetheless. hehe. I added some Stickles to make the cupcake, hat and balloon sparkle. And I used a tracing wheel again around the main image. This cute layout is a sketch by AmyR.
