Is that a prize or what???  I told you we knew how to party!

For my sample today I thought it would be fun to make Whimsie Doodles a birthday card, in honor of their special month. I used the new Sock It Party Monkey rubber stamp and coordinating sentiment.


I used the Out of the Box technique with my Spellbinders die so part of the birthday balloon could extend past the cut out shape. For a bit of bling I added some gems to the cute little monkey's cupcake.


Now go forth and hop and create something Doodleliciously fabulous!
