Second Birthday

There aren't too many family birthdays coming up, so I'm just now starting to think about building up for next winter/spring's family birthday slam, since I don't know when we'll be moving.  In January, my nephew will be turning 2, so I thought I would use Life's a Party to make him a card.

I cut the monkey at 3 inches and the number two at 2 inches.  They aren't from the same page of the handbook- the number is part of the font.  Then I added two little green star brads at the bottom.  I had considered buttons, but the two little brads were just too cute. 

I'm entering this into the following challenge:
Celebrate the Occasion- Child's birthday
