Magnolia DT Monkey + 'Shrunk' Parrot Card
Here is another Magnolia DT card using stamps from the new Pets and Animals 09 Collection. This is just the cutest monkey and he is great to colour. I was also sent the parrot in my DT kit and there was no room to fit him on this card so I decided to stamp him on shrink plastic so he could sit on the vines! The flowers have been punched out and I have used vellum for some of them.
Have a fabby weekend!Supplies

Gorgeous creation Andrea ... so much character. I love the doodling around the image and sentiment. Great colours which makes me think of a monkey and a banana. Hugs from Desire
