Cheeky Monkey

Hi Everyone,
Today I have created a card for my great Nephew's 2nd Birthday. 
Moving Along with the Times is having a challenge this week and the lovely Sue is your host, Sue would like to see Cute Critters, and I thought I would use this little Cheeky Monkey from CC Designs, he is actually called Birthday Monkey and I think he is the cutest!
Now the family live a long way away from us, so I don't get to see the little fellow this is going to, but if he is anything like his father was when he was little this should suit him perfectly, his dad was always getting into mischief. 

Here is a snap of the inside, all the sentiments and stars are from a Gina K Designs set called Candles on your cake, I had a few nervous moments when I stamped the stars around the monkey, I thought what if I muck it up now, does anyone else ever feel like that? You want to do it , but a bit scared your going to destroy all your hard work. But in this case it was all good, breathing a sigh of relief.....
Here is a close up of him, notice the cupcake is chocolate, just had to be chocolate ( my favourite ).
