the monkeys are coming...

My beautiful daughter just had her fifth birthday a few days ago and she wanted a sock monkey theme... so I made about 20 of these invites for her friends. The inside was printed on my 'puter and stamped with SU Sprinkles and the banana from Sock Monkey.










I have a bear Wilton's cake pan and I decorated it like the sock monkey on the invite. The pink is a whole lot darker than I wanted it to be but Abby didn't mind, so I went with it. It's been a long time since I did a cake like this and I forgot how fun it is.


supplies:
paper: pink pirouette, chocolate chip dsp, cheap textured vanilla from AC Moore
ink: basic brown, pti dark chocolate, summer sun, pretty in pink
stamps: sock monkey and accessories, sprinkles, i forget what set the *you're invited* sentiment is from, sorry
accessories: copic markers, stickles
