It was my middle son's birthday yesterday and this is the card I did for him. I first saw the sentiment in January in a card store and I couldn't stop laughing. I don't know which company made the card but they did a great job. I coloured the guy with watercolour pencils and then used baby oil to blend. I added crystal effects on the necklace and his eyes.
I didn't take a photo of the inside before we all signed it so I blacked out what we wrote. That's why the white inside looks funny. The sentiment is so perfect!

I've entered this into:
