Yay! Monkey Zip Line

Hello.  Welcome.  Been playing with Cheery Lynn's Yay! Monkey.  I had images of him swinging by his tail from a pennant border.  Sometimes these ideas look so good in my head.........  So we went in a different direction and I ended up with an interactive birthday card.  Go Monkey........

I used an cream linen base card and smeared with Ground Expresso distress.   I stamped various sentiments from Rubber Dance Happy Birthday set.   I added some grommets and a piece of twine coloured with distress ink and Cheery Lynn's Yay! Monkey.  Paper pieced in two shades of brown.  I used a cocktail stick and another sentiment from the Rubber Dance set to make a little sign for him to hold.

Slide him along to reveal very good advice to Eat Cake!!

Poor man's video.  Click on the picture to make it bigger then flick between the three to see monkey on the zip line.  Go on, you know you want to.
