Oh my, this is so fabulously cheerful! :o) The colors are stunning and you just cannot go wrong with a cupcake-loving monkey! I love how his tail is tucked in between the layers.. the googly eyes are perfect.. and the flowery border and sparkles are gorgeous accents. I love this card, Lisa. (And you are very welcome... you're amazing in every way and deserve every recognition possible. Thanks for being such a sweet bloggy friend!)
