Graduation thanks

I made this card earlier in the week but forgot to post it ... oops.  I made a few of these for Michael to send out as his thank you cards for graduation gifts.  Tried to create something cute, not too kiddish and masculine.  Think I might have succeeded since Michael said he liked it and was willing to sign his name on them.  

Stamps:  Monkey Business
Paper:  Close to Cocoa, Always Artichoke, Cream (not SU)
DSP:  from an old stash that was bought at a craft store years ago
Ink:  Close to Cocoa, Daffodil Delight, Black
Accessories:  polka dot embossing folder, Nestabilities circle and scallop die, twine, dimensionals
All products are SU unless otherwise noted.

I used this week's MOJO sketch as my starting point.  You can always find a good sketch over there.  I rock n' rolled the banana's to add a little definition to them.

Thanks for stopping by and remember the door is always open, so please stop by often.

Have a great day,

Great for a grad thank you. Who wouldn't love to receive this cute monkey and bananas? I really do like that crackled dp in the background, too.
BTW, haven't you changed your blog bg? I really like it and have meant to say something every time I come to comment.
