Monkey Birthday Invite!

As I mentioned in a previous post, one of my best friend's daughter is turning 4 in about 2 months. This year for her birthday my friend is having her party at one of those gymnastic, foam pit, springing floors places. The party will actually be at the beginning of October, a few weeks earlier than her birthday, so I'm trying to get the invites together in the next few weeks. 
She hasn't decided the exact day or time so I left that area blank but I think I've figured out how they are going to look!!

I used Cricut Essentials for the scalloped circle and inside circle, and Create a Critter for the monkey and vine. I ran the inside circle and vine through my NEW Cuttlebug!!! with the Sizzix Branches with Leaves folder. 

I'm entering this in:
