Go Bananas!

I had so much fun making this 8inch square card at the weekend for my daughter's birthday today.  She's 23 but loves monkeys so I thought this image and sentiment from a set of Inky Antics stamps would be just the job!  He's coloured with Promarkers and glittered.  She is also a big fan of orange too.  I distressed all the edges and inked them with Wild Honey distress ink.  The monkey border and the flower were cut on my Cricut.  I made the flower from palm leaves!  The bananas are cut freehand.  The dp is from Basic Grey.
I'd like to enter this into several challenges just because I really like it!!  I'm glad it's staying in the family, you know, I sometimes hate having to part with my cards, they're like children!! lol  Are you like me, I stand them on the sideboard before they get sent so that I can see them, lol - (Or am I just dotty - you decide?!!)
