Riley is partying!

I really am not sure why I am stamping today - my mind is not in it but wanted to get my card made for Brandon's second birthday. He is a little monkey and more so now with the terrible twos stage so I thought it appropriate to use my Riley monkey stamp.
The idea of the grid background came from this card made by Carolina. Thankyou Carolina for your ideas. The grid is so easy to do using the Scor-Pal. For the paper piecing, I used the Chocolate Chip DSP and other colours used were Stampin' Up! Riding Hood Red, Whisper White and So Saffron. Sets used were Sock Monkey and Best Yet.
