So Cute Engraved Greetings for Monkey Challenge 57

I'm diggin' Certainly Celery and Early Espresso together on this card. It's another A La Card Monkey Challenge - a birthday card with the sketch shown below - and I love it! I stamped the little cupcake from So Cute in Early Espresso, then used a Real Red marker on the cherry (with a white gel pen for a highlight). I then used the white gel pen to color in the frosting so the background would stand out more. The vertical strip of Early Espresso was run through the Square Lattice Embossing Folder, and the Happy Birthday sentiment from Engraved Greetings was inked with markers. I did a cheater bow with the 3/8" Certainly Celery taffeta, sticking the ends through the back so they didn't show.

Visit and add your own card to the fun! There are wonderful guest designers (again!), who provide even more inspiration.

Another blog candy plug - the number of followers is creeping up to 300, which means a BIG PRIZE, over at A La Card Monkey. If you're not a follower yet, it's a good time to become one to get in on the loot!
