A Changito Birthday!
Recently my 18 year old son, asked me to make a birthday card for one of the kids on his soccer team. After showing him and his friend several stamps, they finally settled on Changito. These little monkey's are so cute and are so easy to color.
I started out by stamping the Changito birthday image twice on white card stock and coloring with Prismacolor markers. Before layering, I stippled Stampin Up! bashful blue card stock around the edges then layered onto pumpkin pie & old olive card stock. Using some Die Cuts With A View Safari Mat Stack designer papers, I cut a strip of one paper to make a "ribbon", distressed the edges and tied some Adornment green fibers I had from my stash. After cutting out the second Changito image, I popped those pieces up on dimensionals and mini pop dots. It was then I suddenly remembered that I had some DCWV Safari brads I had found on clearance last year at Michael's and a couple of button stickers from Target that would also match.
