Monkey for Monday

Got my new SU! stamp sets last week.
This little monkey instantly caught my eye.
He's from Zoofari.
Looks like he is up to something, doesn't it.
Something about that devilish grin that is a little unsettling.
Also got the new chipboard and I actually used a piece!
Now that is progress in my hoarding problem.
I inked up that little flower with some pigment inks and then in typical spazz fashion, I couldn't wait for it to dry so I tried to finish off the card and...Voila, yellow smudges on my card!
See them?!!
Ugh, I am so impatient when it comes to stuff, I do this all the time.
Luckily it's not black, yellow is less noticeable.

I used orange on the edges of the flower, really added a little something.
And the sentiment is from It's Your Birthday.
Ribbon was purchased years ago (shock!) from Archivers.
Cheeky little monkey was colored with Prismacolor Pencils.

And see the white cardstock?
It's from SU and I was going to just make a white card but the paper was too flimsy to hold the chipboard flower.
Seriously, anybody got the 411 on this problem, is it thinner or is it just me?
