I needed a Birthday Card on Saturday so I used the February Stamp of the Month (SOTM), called Balloon Animals. I used the Monkey Balloon and stamped it twice. Once in Desert Sand and again in Champagne. I just trimmed out certain parts of the champagne image and glued it to the Desert sand image. Then I used the Cherry Pink Shin Han Marker and colored in the mouth area and drew on a mouth

The background was stamped with the ink blots stamp set, then dry embossed with the Arrow Embossing Folder

I punched a strip of white CS with the Chevron Border Punch and lined it with Red Shimmer Trim.

Now hop on over to Betty's Blog and check out her eye candy.
