Happy Day for Monkey Challenge 94

I've been wanting to use this stamp, "Packed for Birthday" since I got it and this week's A la Card Monkey Challenge was a perfect excuse to use it. I've got a few friends with birthdays coming up in the next week so I'm also glad to have a template to work from.

Here's the card (be sure to check out the sketch at A la Card Monkey)

Packed for Birthday

I saw Tammy use this stamp and highlight part of it and I really liked the idea.  To colour the pinata I used blender pens for the Old Olive and Poppy Parade inks and a So Saffron Stampin' Write Marker.  I decided to make the pinata a "button " by covering it with Crystal Effects (although the picture does not do it justice).
