My first ever 3d Reveal Card for Emily

I thought I would have a go at a 3d Reveal card using my new monkey stamps I bought at Ally Pally last weekend. My daughter Freya helped holding it closed for the first photo, thank you Freya.
I was really pleased with how it turned out. The stripey paper on the outside is printed from a Pink Petticoat download, so is the small dotty paper in the back of the card.
I stamped out the monkey images and coloured them in with Promarkers. The sentiment is computer generated and cut out with my circle and scalloped circle nesties. The other circle has three bananas in the shape of a 10 on it as Emily, my niece will be 10 on the 22nd April. That was Freya's idea so she stuck those on the circle for me, I think it gives it a nice touch.
The 3 brown bars across the card move along as you open the card up to reveal 3 lots of monkeys.
I hope she likes it, most kids like moving cards don't they.
