"They say it's your Birthday" Monkey Challenge 57

It's a Monkey Challenge time and we have a  Birthday Card with a Sketch. I thought that I would do a "Man Card". Sometimes doing them just gives me a Pain! But with all the new stamp sets in this Summer Mini how could you not.

I am just loving all this Nautical stuff.

Make a Birthday card with this sketch and then jump over to "A La Card Monkey" and post it there for a chance to be our "Monkey Princess".

 I wanted my Birthday banner to look like a flag, so I used a 5/8th square punch to do the ends like that.

There are just so many cute stamps in this set!! The anchor is really perfect.

Just click here to see Terry's card for the Challenge!
