Lou's Birthday Card

There's quite a few pic of this card because its quite a busy card. First the reason for all the High Hopes Jungle images. My niece is made for Giraffes and on her actual birthday she took her niece and nephews to Marwell Zoo with my Sister so this would help to remind her what she actual did on her big birthday.

The papers are WRMK, the Magnolia doo hickey grass die. The 40 cut out using the Cricut Storybook cartridge. Sentiment computer generated and used a Stampin Up punch.
The flowers are EK success retro flower and the teeny tiny ones is a do-crafts one that I've had for ages. Of course I had to have a bit of ribbon somewhere.
Close up of the monkey and the sentiment which I drew a line round the punched shape  because it annoyed me being plain. Now you've seen my card you can understand how it took so long to cut them all out including the palm trees.
Another view of the whole card cos its my blog and I can. I was really pleased with the finished card because everything that could go wrong did. Lets hop my niece loves it too.
