Happy Birthday Mason Rain!

It's Mason's 2nd birthday today! Happy Birthday Mason! Wish I could be there. This is the card I ended up sending.
Thinking that a cheeky monkey in bright colours might be more favourable than the pastel coloured ark. (As long as he doesn't eat the bits!) which I made waaay back in February, then I found again...(I'm always losing things... shoes, glasses, car keys...)
I've used another Dustin Pike digi this time too, coloured it with ProMarkers, of course. I've decoupaged or 3D-ed him and added another candle as there was only one.
First I coloured about four monkeys, (monkies?? No, that doesn't look right!) kept one as the base, then added another whole image, so his hat and feet, which had been sliced off by the Nestie die-cut, would still be there. (He didn't mind losing his feet) Then added a tailless monkey, (Ouch!!) then just a head, (he was used to it by then!) and an extra present and candle... (If you understood all that, you're cleverer than me!)
I've used freebie brown gingham backing paper, which is available HERE. The green paper with chocolates dots came from Pink Petticoat.
The Font of course is a freebie, I've linked it before, it's called Baby Kruffy and you can download it HERE.
The top sentiment line is printed as it types out in 'Word' and the red was put into WordArt (on your computer) and coloured there too.
Inside I've used green paper for the insert to go with the green card and added a Penny Back Stickeroo. All fixed together with either silicone glue or photo glue.
This photo was snagged off of FaceBook. Mason playing with the Duplo Lego we sent him, via his Aunty Emma and Uncle Tom... Like I said. Wish we were there!
At least the card arrived this time, (You can see it in the pic below) not sure if the tiger card I made last year ever arrived, as they don't have a postman out there and a couple of my cards have come back, undelivered.
I will add some challenges later, have a few lined up but I've (ummm) lost my little note book... which is no surprise seeing the state of my craft room!! But it's toooo sunny to tidy up!!! Thanks for stopping by!
