Monkey Barrel card

I had a dilemna with this card, I thought I had made it a bit too fussy with my background so I chose to blacken it with my copic marker! I am showing both as I'm not sure which way I like it best, what do you think? I think I like it with the black background but my daughter prefers the messy background as she says that's what cheeky monkeys would like lol!!

The digi image is from Doodle Dragons, they were a lot of fun to color (but needed a few different shades of brown for this one!)
