The three wise monkeys

Morning all.
As it's Tuesday it means it's also time for a new challenge over at Cardz4Guyz.
This week we want you to include -


in your projects.

Here is the front of my card for the DT.

Regular visitors my recognize these cheeky little chaps from an earlier challenge but I thought they were fun and just the thing for my Son's birthday. After printing I coloured them with Copics before fussy cutting them and mounting them on pads on the panels. The background DP is from NitWits and is a really bright and fun, just what I needed.
This is just the front and because it was a really special birthday I wanted to make the inside a surprise. I am guilty of not finishing the insides of my cards til I need them but I took a little more care with this one.
Take a look inside.

When you open the card these balloons pop out and announce the rather significant birthday!

I stamped banners in bright colours from STAMPlorations Banners and Balloons set along with some trumpets and party streamers. I die cut the balloons from matching card and sandwiched a strip of acetate between the front and back, sticking the acetate strips between folds in the middle of the card. The inner was then glued to the outer to complete. 

OK, now it's over to you. Check out the rest of the team's inspiration over at the Cardz4Guyz blog and join in. Please make sure that you state what three things you are including in your project.
