DT post by GiGi - Happy birthday monkey

Hello everyone! This is GiGi from The Cricut Bug here to share a card that I did. I used My Craft Spot's Tiny Doilies Dies and Lacy Banner Dies on this card. Can you see where? 
I also used the Birthday Wishes stamp set. 

I cut the monkey from the MP3 Monkey SVG Cutting Files. I hid the eyes and stamped the eyes and nose using Peachy Keen face stamps. I also opted to not use the MP3 player. The hat was created by using MCS's Lacy Banners Die and I added a twine pom to the top using Orange Divine Twine. The balloon was made using MCS's Tiny Doilies Dies and I hand cut a piece for the bottom of the balloon. I attached some twine from the balloon to his hand and pop dotted the balloon.
I used my sewing machine and did a black stitched line around the card and stamped the sentiment onto a banner using MCS's Birthday Wishes stamp set.

I hope you all liked my card and thanks for stopping in! Have a great day!
