David is a monkey! - Colour Create

The Challenge this week on Colour Create is to use Orange, green and brown.
David is going to be 3 tomorrow and he is a very lovable cheeky monkey - son of my friend Lesley. I have had these Creative Imaginations papers for a while looking for a suitable project!
Cut the double sided paper to create tree trunk and tree top. Cut out several of the circles to create layered effect. Cut monkeys from second piece of paper and the reverse side of this had the stripes used for the grass. Added a little orange (tangerine) colour box fluid chalk.
Leaves made from Tim Holtz grungeboard with a swirl, painted with green H2O and edges also inked. Card base cut away following shape of tree and large lettering added to inside of card.
A change for me - lots of fun.....
