Monkey Fun

Ok so my sister complained.  Too many floral cards.  "Where are all the animals?" she said.  Then she challenged me... an animal themed bright pink and black card.
So Emily, this one's for you.  The monkeys are celebrating all her fabulous achievements... PHD, amazing job... just general all round genius that she is. Love you sis. x
All stamps are from My Cute Stamps Circus Animals set.  I just love it.
Since I paper-pieced al the monkeys, I thought I'd enter it into the Moxie Fab World 'Picking up the Pieces' challenge.
Oh and P.S.
  don't you just love the cross-eyed monkey in the middle...  she's had too much Champagne.
