Monkey Surprise!

I recently bought a few Dandelion Designs stamps from a local scrapbook store and finally used one. I decided to play in the Taylored Expressions Cupcake Challenge #66 and thought this cute image of a monkey holding a present was perfect for it:

Buuuut... I really like using cupcakes when I'm playing in Taylor's challenges, so I decided to change up the image a bit and put a cupcake in his hands to cover up the present:

The cupcake is from the Susie Surprise set from The Greeting Farm and the sentiment was done with some super old Making Memories rub-ons. Hope you like it and TFL!

Other materials used: patterned paper - Basic Grey (Eva paper pad); white ribbon - May Arts; green ribbon from stash; flowers - Prima; buttons - Papertrey Ink; scallop border punch - Stampin' Up!; brads - Pink Hedgehog Papercrafts; Copic markers; small fern punch - CarlaCraft; Mega Curved Rectangles Nestabilities.
