Swinging By To Say.....Happy Birthday!

Swinging By To Say..... - Front
Today is my younger brother birthday and I make a funny card to cheer him up as yesterday some unfortunate incident happens to him.

Tuesday Morning Sketches #149
This card layout is inspirational from Tuesday Morning Sketches #149 sketch/challenge as shown above. 

Close-up : Swinging monkeys
As I wanted to make a funny card, I decided to use the new stamp set that I purchase recently. The image is stamped on a white rectangular cardstock and colored with Copic markers. It is then layered onto a green rectangular cardstock.

Close-up : Sentiment "Just swinging by to say..."
The sentiment is stamped on the lower of a blue scalloped square. It is then attached to the image partially, revealing the sentiment only. The whole image and sentiment is attached onto a soft green patterned cardstock. On the left side of the soft green patterned cardstock, an olive green mesh is tied. This time is easier to tied the bow as I learned from my previous experience. :P

Swinging By To Say..... - Inside
Inside the card, following the sentiment from the front which is "Just swinging by to say.....", it is stamped with sentiment of "Happy birthday and sending you a huge monster hugs". I decided to have the ".....sending you a huge monster hugs" as first, I can use the monster for some funny element and second, to comfort him from the unfortunate incident that happens to him yesterday.

The cute monster is paper pieced.

Dimension : 12.7cm x 19.05cm or 5" x 7.5"

Inlay : None but with stamped sentiments and image
