Stamp TV Color Challenge - STVCC22

Over at Stamp TV, the 7/20 Color Challenge requires you to use Green, Brown & White/Vanilla on your card. This worked out perfectly for me! I had been planning on making a card with the Changito Tire Swing stamp I just bought - yeah I know I'm obsessed - LOL!!! So after searching and searching for a palm tree to use, I finally found one at my friend Jenn's house. She was going thru all her stamping stuff - beading is her new thing - and we found a store bought die cut Palm Tree hiding away in a drawer. It was just right for what I wanted to do:

Stamps: Changito Tire Swing by Stampendous, Happy Birthday from a SU set

Paper: Garden Green & Confetti Cream SU, misc background paper & Palm Tree Die Cut

Misc: Twine for rope swing & cover wire for the monkey's tail

Taking some inspiration from my sister's idea of the little girl swinging - - I wanted to make the monkey swing when the card is opened. I used some twine and freestyle cut the opening with a Purple Cow cutter. Since the challenge was only Brown, Green & White/Vanilla, the tire had to be brown, but I think it's cute anyway!
