Wiggly Monkey card

I have been very impatiently waiting on my order of Action Wobbles to arrive so that I could finish this card.
I didn't put a lot on the front because I wanted the "swinging" monkey to be the focal point and when I attempted anything else it just seemed to be too much.  My style seems to be more simple and less fussy.  Even though I really like other people's busier designs, I don't seem to be able to do it myself.

Anyway, this card is for my nephew.

This adorable monkey is from Create A Critter on page 46.  I love him so much, I have used him in a couple of different cards.    The Go Wild word art is from CAC also on page 29 under the Phrase key.   The Happy Birthday is from Life is a Party page 31 under the Phrase option.  The 18 is the font from Life is a Beach.  All the patterned paper is from DCWV's The Guy Stack.  The Base is Kraft paper from Papertrey Ink.  The green on the inside is Coredinations and the blue background on the front was from my scraps, but I believe is also a Coredinations card stock.

I wish you could see the Monkey "swinging" from the vine.  It is really cute.  I have tons of ideas for more uses of the Action Wobbles, so stay tuned.

Thanks for coming by and I love comments and don't mind critiques!
