Monkey Valentine's Card

I have matt and layered my 8x8in white card with red card and white embossed card. I have embossed the white card with a Creative Expressions embossing folder. 

I printed a sentiment and die cut it with a Sizzix heart die, I die cut a red heart with the next size in the nesting set of scalloped hearts. I die cut the monkeys using Marianne dies. I assembled the monkeys and added them to the card with the hearts. I die cut the smallest heart in the Sizzix nesting set in red card and added a die cut sentiment using letters from a Xcut die and a very small heart from a SueWilson die. I completed my card with Tonic Nuvo drops
