TMITA Challenge

My friend Patti is hosting this week's challenge at There's Magic In the Air. She would like you to use "ANY acquired PAPER CUPCAKE'S" image and use the sketch shown at bottom right. You can stretch it, rotate it, reverse it etc as long as the original sketch can still be seen and you use a Paper Cupcake image. I used the freebie digi image that Nina offered this week since it was sooo perfect for a birthday card for my nephew, Jacob, who is one on Friday. He dressed as a monkey for Halloween and looked so cute plus he also just loves, loves bananas and monkeys! So the image suits him so well. Thanks to Nina for all her freebies.   I again  used  Photoshop to create this card.  I used a base of  brown layered with a yellow and white check mat (background in PS) and then a mat (shape which I used a filter on to give a design) of "brown DP".  I colored the image of "Orson and Cake" with PS and cut as an oval (using shape option) that I "matted" with yellow and "sponged" with yellow.   Added some bananas for Jacob to finish the card.   I plan to print this when I can use my hand and am back to my studio where I can use cardstock, nesties, etc to create a paper card to send to Jacob.   I wish I had a picture of Jacob in his monkey costume...will add later.
Happy Birthday, Jacob!
Thanks for stopping by for a visit!
