Look! Up in the Sky, It's a . . . Monkey?

I managed to squeeze in one last diecut from my watercolor panel.  Of course, I still had rainbows on the brain so made a whimsical card with a floating monkey.  A floating monkey.  Can the world get any more topsy turvy?

I drew in the balloon strings prior to embossing then attached the sentiment and monkey.  Reminds me of a parade balloon (where a monkey would not be out of place, thank you very  much!).  In retrospect, I do wish I had tried hanging the monkey from his tail

The Details:  Lawn Fawn Thanks die, Mama Elephant Up & Away stamp, Sakura 01 black ink pen, Paper Studio clouds embossing folder, Recollections white 110 lb cardstock, Distress Inks, Glossy Accents, Spectrum Noirs, mystery card base from stash, Gansai Tambi watercolors

I'm entering this in AAA Cards #23 Watercolors, Virginia's View #8 CAS, Simon Says Wednesday Watercolors, Addicted to Stamps & More #116 Anything Goes
