Less is More - Cocktails

So this cocktail is called  'Monkey in a tree' !!! Honestly it really is!
Apparently it's
1 shot cremes de bananes (though I couldn't find out what this is)
1 shot Bailey's Irish Cream (I definitely know what this is!)
1 shot kahlua (a Mexican coffee liqueur)
and then the glass is topped up with cream!!!!!!!!
Now this is MY sort of cocktail!
Back to the card - a 5inch square cream base. Monkey is a sticker that was in a pack from a certain store that sells everything for £1!! I made the palm tree for him to sit in with scraps of brown pearl paper and scribbled the grass at the base. Sentiment is a rub on. Faux stitching framed it all off. Hope this is CAS enough for the  LIM ladies.
Off now to have my cocoa (no cocktails for me tonight!)
