Monkey Birthday (LSC178)

Today's Limited Supplies Challenge was really a challenge! It had to have a birthday theme, four or less layers, NO coloring supplies, and the only embellishments allowed were ribbon or cord (I think the thread I used was OK).

I stamped the monkey with Close To Cocoa on Naturals White and paper pieced him with various designer paper scraps. The eyes were punched from Basic Black. The ribbon is Purely Pomegranate Wide Satin Ribbon. I'm still using up my In-Color stuff! The balloon is Pomegranate. The base card is River Rock with the Twill background stamped in Pomegranate ink. The sentiment came from Birthday Whimsy (SAB set). Having to paper piece this little guy took more time than water coloring him, that's for sure!
