I have made two cards featuring the Birthday Monkey  set.

My first card I made digitally in photoshop.

First I colored the monkey stamp in photoshop and saved it on my computer (as png file).
The jungle background is pre made and a free download from vector
I placed the monkey and the sentiment in the free jungle vector using photoshop again.
If the sentiment is changed this could also be a cute invitation card for a child's birthday party.

I did make a second card with this funny chimp and this time I colored the image by hand using my spectrum noir markers.

First I printed the image pretty large on white cardstock and colored it in.  
TIP: By tracing around the image with grey or blue you can make the image pop out more.
I also printed and colored a banana and placed it in he chimps hand. 
Then I printed the sentiment on the cardstock.
I glued the white panel on yellow cardstock and these on a brown card.

Two totally different cards with one cute image.
