NCC Monkey Business 08996
On my first card, I used the Thanks a Bunch set w/ the matching Monkey dies. This little monkey w/ the big grin just makes me smile 🙂 . I stamped, colored, over stamped & die cut 2 of him & also die cut a couple of plain white faces & feet to stack under these areas to give him some dimension. The layers & frames were all die cut w/ ODBD dies (see list in supplies box) & attached to the card front  Some bananas were also colored & die cut along w/ the greeting tag.

I knew I wanted a palm tree, so I set about making one w/ die cut & sponged pine cones, stacked on top of each other for the trunk & some lacy fronds for the palm leaves.

I colored my birdies blue on top w/ peachy undersides to go w/ the fun Beautiful Boho paper. The rectangles & big circle were die cut using the soon to be released ODBD Pierced Rectangles & Pierced Circles. After I put the scene together, I added some stickles & a few enamel dots to finish.
