TSG170 - Sketch Challenge

Alright, Sketch-o-holics!  You are in luck!  
It's a sketch challenge this week on the There She She Blog!

Here's my card:

I just love this image and sentiment from the Jungle Out There Stamp set! I just realized that is it out of stock when I linked it back to the store.  I checked with Jessica Knutsen and she expects to have this set back in stock within 2 weeks.  I stamped the image onto X-Press It blending card in Momento Tuxedo black ink and colored it with copics.  I stamped it again and colored the hands and the center part of his face.  I adhered his hands over the branch and popped up the center face with foam squares to add dimension.  I paired some DP from the MME Gnome Sweet Gnome 6x6 paper pad with some Bazzill Card Shoppe peanut cluster and icy mint CS.  I added some red cotton twill ribbon and some natural jute from the Ribbon Carousel.  I stamped the sentiment in Momento rich cocoa ink.  

Here is a close up of the monkey so you can see the dimension.

I colored the monkey with E37, E35, E34, E33,E31, E30
 and added outlined him with some B0000.
I colored the branch with E59. E57,and E55 and the leaves with YG97, YG95, and YG93.

Here is the fun sketch:
