A Peachy Dustin Monkey!

I know I'm going to be too late for this Peachy Keen Stamps Challenge as I forgot to take a picture of the card when I had my mum's camera, so....I had to dig out the 'camera free with a posh cracker' (link goes to 'old' photo) to take this picture this morning!! So, pop back later for the upgrade in photo's!!
(New photo's now added)
There's a sketch to follow (I'm sure today is the last day) I like sketches, if they aren't too 'mad' with loads of stuff on them, as it's nice to add your own twist on things. Anyway, here tis and if you were here earlier you'll notice I've changed and added more pictures. Regular bloggers will know the monkey is the art work of Dustin Pike. I was lucky enough to win some of his fabulous images in one of the challenges he set back in May. I've coloured him (the monkey not Dustn!) with ProMakers and Copic pens and did a bit of 3D-ing! First I printed out three monkeys. (and reduced their size) The first monkey I punched out with a large Woodware punch (I have a good left hook, cutting off a bit of his tail and head..ow!) The second monkey was then fixed over the first and then I added another layer with just the cake, and finished off with a bit of micro glitter. The little cakes at the side are from a Bubble and Squeak clear stamping set. The Papers are Pink Petticoat, pink dots to cover the card and then the pink gingham was a freebie from Madabout Cards. Now the font, for all those who love free fonts is called Boyz R gross NF and is available as a freebie HERE. I've typed this out in WordArt so I could use the two colours. It's classed as a Comic, Cartoon font, so I think it's great for this type of card.
Pop back soon to find out who's won....
