Another Birthday Card With Attitude

Made a card for a friends little boy whose birthday it is today!
He's been a bit of a monkey with his antics lately so when I saw this image on Digi's With Attitude! the other day, I immediately thought of him! It made me laugh as on the same day I got this image I saw the card his mum had made for him. It too featured a monkey!!!
Don't know why I wanted to make a round card, it just seemed to fit the image! My first ever round easel card!
The backing paper has been in a file on my pc forever it's from some Jungle Safari Clip Art which I purchased at Sammy Murphy's Scrapbooking Mad, the site that got me into downloads way back when!!! Made a host of friends on the forum there too!
Anyway, again I digress!!! I coloured the image with my promarkers and then cut it out out with my nesties, on the Big shot Express, but when I embossed it the image slipped! (Still not found the best way to do this & all tuts are for Big Shot manual with different platforms. If anyone can advise I'd be delighted!) I think it looks quite good the way it is, double embossed on one side!
I printed out the greeting & coloured it with promarkers and went round the edges of the circle with the same pen.


  1. I love it Dawn, thank you SO much! Funny that we both chose monkey images!!! Big hugs, from Ali x

  2. Fab card, well done on your first round easel card (it won't be your last I'm sure! shaped easels are totally addictive). x

  3. Just loving that image Dawn - he's soooo cute! Fabulous card I'm sure Noah loves it - awwww now aren't you the best friend a girl could ever have. Big hugs xxx

  4. Forgot to say I'll have a go at embossing the nesties next time I use my big shot - I'll let you know how I get on - I'll be keeping my eye out on here in case someone who knows what's what comes along ;)

  5. I am so glad you left a comment on the Challenge blog, as it lead me to your blog!
