Monkey Around

 A friend has a birthday this weekend, and I wanted to work on a special card for her.  I have a great stamp set by Inky Antics that I just love, so I wanted to use it on my project.  Along with a great piece of dp, I think this card will work very well. :) :)

Isn't that monkey adorable!?  He's just too much fun to work with.

To add a little extra 'something special' to this card, I put this other image on the inside.  To just add the image would have been cute, but I chose to give it some ... bounce. :)  The little guy was placed on a handmade 'spring.'  When you open the card, he just ... springs to life. :)

Here's how it looks on the back of the image. I simply took the wire, wrapped it around a pen, and attached it with tape to the back of the image and to the card.  It was an easy, cute addition to the card.
