Hubby's Birthday

Afternoon all - Me again!!
Just thought I'd pop by and show you the card I made for hubby's birthday - today.
Happy Birthday John x
I have had this Dustin Pike image for a while and it just seemed appropriate for this card - not that I'm saying hubby is a monkey - although he does have a very hairy back (ooh perhaps I shouldn't mention that). I wasn't going to make him a card as we have adopted my Grandads idea that it is far better to write happy birthday on a bar of chocolate than spend loads of money on a card, as you can eat the choc but just look at the card. But hey, what sort of blogger would I be to miss out on the opportunity of a challenge or two, so I made a card as well as get the chocolate.
I'd like to enter this into the following challenges;
Simon Says - sketch
CRAFT - Christmas birthday
Stamp Something - Christmas colour combo
Allsorts - light up the sky - must include candle
Our Creative Corner - colour combo
Thanks for looking and enjoy your day.
