Grungy Birthday Boy card (The Greeting Farm image)

Hi everyone,

I have to be super quick tonight as I have 3 cards to post and it's almost midnight here in Oz!! 

This card is very unusual for me - a boy's card first of all and then I have used a rubber stamp (digis are usually my go to images). This gorgeous guy is from The Greeting Farm and I've had him for quite a while but recently I was going through my rubber stamps and found him again.

I have used antique gold pearls from Flourish with a Bling, see below for this month's promotion.
