Changito's Happy 4th of July

Good Morning All...Thanks for stopping by. Here's a 4th of July card I did for my 3 year old grandson. I used the Star Shaped Template from The Cutting Cafe and 4th of July Printable Stamp Set 1 also from The Cutting Cafe for the sentiments. The image is the ever lovable Changito from Stampendous. I don't recall the name of the set but it's the same set I used for St. Patrick's Day but I masked the clover so he could hold the flag. No matter how hard I try to look beyond the clover to see the flag, I still see the clover. When I was putting the image on the circle, I sort of bent the image so rather than doing it over, I added the craft yarn bow to hide it. My grandson is a little monkey himself so I'm sure he'll love it---
Here is the recipe---
Card Size: Approx 5.75 x 5.75
Prisma Markers
Card Template: Cutting Cafe-Star Shaped Card
Stamp/Image: Stampendous
Sentiments: Cutting Cafe-4th of July-Set 1
Nestibilities: Circle/Scallop
Cuttlebug: 2x2 Snowflake #2 Die (for stars on scallop circle and star on hat)
Accessories: Glitter, Flat Back Pearls, Craft Yarn, Gem Star Button, Toothpick, Foam Pop Dots
Base Cardstock: Bazzill
Patterned Paper: DCWV Shimmer Stack, Gina K Digital Paper Pack-Stars and Stripes

That's it for today, I hope to see you again tomorrow til then, enjoy your day!
