Our cheeky monkey is celebrating a birthday !!!

Our nephew is truly a monkey, climbing and jumping everywhere. He might be 16 but his athletics abilities are just incredible. He has no fear.

For his birthday I thought it would be quite fun to tell him that he is a cheeky monkey!

For the background, I used mustard seeds distress inks in order to stamp the falling bananas.

To give some depth to the card, I used the lawn fawn border on a piece of cardstock I prepared with green distress inks. This will be in relief compared to the background.

I colored the monkeys with Polychromos, I am quite pleased with how they turned out.

Once cut, I put the jute twine within the tail of one of the monkey and tried to make a playful scene with moving monkeys. One of them appears to play hide and seek at the bottom and the one on the twine can slide on it.
