Paper Pieced Monkey for Nora

I really love this stamp set from Simon Says Stamp.

This is my second card using Cool Monkey and this time I let him smile. My dear Nora turns 4 – TODAY – and is often referred to as a monkey because of her antics. She’s the middle child and her mom will agree that she’s the ‘wild thing’ of the family. I’m heading out this evening to help celebrate the big day. (Please see the Ins and Outs for links to the challenge websites and feel free to join in the fun).

Sketch Inspiration ~ Charisma Cardz #30

Color Inspiration ~ 365 Cards Day 156 ~ Ad Inspired I pulled out the greens, reds and cream from the photo for my card.

Image Detail I paper pieced the monkey’s hair, face and eyes. I thought the teeth looked a bit odd in tan so I used my white gel pen to fill them in. I could have pieced them as well, but was to lazy to dig the stamp pad out again. :o)
