Birthday Bananas

Happy Wednesday.  It's the middle of the week and that means it's all down hill from here.....the weekend is right around the corner and I am so glad!
 
Today I have a birthday card that I'd like to share with you.  For this one I used the Gone Bananas file from Marjorie Ann Designs.  These monkeys are all so adorable and I love that this one is peaking out from behind the leaves of a palm tree. 
 
I tried something different with his eyes and I'm thinking I like that shaded look on the eyes in addition to the lashes.  Although I've seen some awesome looking eyes without the shading. ...... Maybe it's just because I'm new at the technique.  Either way I'm sure I'll try it again, and who knows maybe I'll get better with practice.
 
I also decided to place my monkey on an action wobble.  Because of his size I thought I'd use two for better balance.  What I did not take into consideration before doing so was that it would limit the range of motion of the wobble.  However, my monkey still wiggles and that's fine with me.
 
The stamped sentiment I used on my card is from the Jaded Blossom stamp set Super Hero.
 
And now I'm off to enter my card in the following challenge:

Jaded Blossom - Go Wild, Any Wild Animal - Ends June 6th

 (EDIT:  I placed the wobbles one on top of the other)
