Eric's birthday card

This is the card I made for Eric's birthday. On the insert, generated on the computer, I typed 'I bet you're exploding with joy at the thought of another birthday. Enjoy it'. I did think about painting a beard on him but then decided I'd spoil the expression on the Bugaboo image! lol

The card blank is by Craft UK. The firework paper is from Oase, over at Stitchybear Digital Stamp Store, and the red card is by Papermill. The Bugaboo image was coloured with my Promarkers and cut with a Spellbinders nestability, matted on to the scalloped nestie. I didn't need to add anything else to make this card eye catching. Eric loved it.

I'm entering this card in to the following challenges:
Simon Says Stamp Challenge - Father's Day or a Special Male (can't get more special than Eric).
Dream Valley - Humour
Here Come the Boys - Anything Goes - male orientated
2 Sisters Challenge - Bring on the Boys
Allsorts Challenge - Happy Birthday to Someone Special
One Stop Craft - One for the Boys
Simon Says Stamp and Show - One for the Boys
