Can you Count?

I've been dying to share this layout with you all. I joined my second swap on SCS Know Your Numbers...I'm still new to 'swapping' but I am really proud of this entry.

The rules were a 6X6 layout, two layers (CS & paper)...I kind of fudged on the paper, but I think the details will make up for it! It wasn't hard to do just took some time with all the details...stamping, watercoloring and cutting 60 monkeys took forever...and then there were the leaves ;-). I did get lucky as a friend let me borrow her Big Shot and Number 5 die...but I ended up using the outline because it looked better...does anyone need 12 5s?

Stamps: Wild Animals LE, Crackle Background
Paper: Neutral Cardstock, DCWV Slab III, vellum
Ink: Palette Noir, Palette Burnt Umber
Accessories: tan scrappers floss, MM bronze eyelets and brads, Big Shot, Lyra Watercolor crayons

UPDATE (3/30): Would you belive the Hostess flaked and never sent out any of her swaps...for 2 months!!! Even with Moderator intervention and the fact another SCS person drove to her house to pick up another swap...cuz she just couldn't get to the Post Office. Unfortunately the Numbers Swap was still in her basement...I am so completely bummed and not a little pissed!
