hoppy birthday

I can't believe my little nephew will be 1 in August ... what saddens me is that nearly the entire family will be away on that day ... we will be in the middle of the Pacific ocean on the supply ship on our way to Pitcairn Island! so we are having his family party just before we embark.
I enjoy making cards for kids ... but I don't enjoy shopping for their birthday presents ... when I  browse at toys I always think 'nah that is too childish' got to get out of that line of thinking!
So here is his card ...
 here is a close up of all the Australian animals ...
I hope he likes it - I have made this card for the following challenges - Southern Girls 'no spoolin'; Creative Card Crew - great outdoors; Quirky Crafts - zoo animals (you find plenty of kangaroos, koalas and kookaburras in an Australian zoo!)
materials used - white card; Echo Park 'so happy together' papers; Lawn Fawn 'critters down under' Staz On jet black ink; Prismacolor pencils; red brad.
Thanks for looking.
