John's Birthday Card

Bit late, but then I'm always late! This is on timer as I'm not here. I have to somehow get John (hubby) to his sisters this afternoon for a surprise party woooohooo! (His Birthday was on Tuesday)
... all very easy....I think not!
But this is a very simple card. Two Bugaboo images used inside and out. The one on the front of the card has been printed out twice so I could do a bit of 3D-ing. Coloured with Promarkers, added a few of my own balloons and some Stickles Glitter glue.
Number backing paper I've had for years and have no idea where it came from. Probably the local crafty shop which closed down years ago, just when I found it!
The two fonts I've used are calledInked, which I can't find at the moment but here is Inked Weird, which is near enough the same and Teenage Angst.
Instead of fixing the papers to the inside, I've left them as an insert. The sentiment with the images come as part of the Bugaboo download.
Now then, what's next? Ah my secret thing that I couldn't show you on WOYWW...ummm? not yet...I might save that for Wednesday. Tomorrow, it's the new Quirky Challenge, and I haven't even started my card yet!! Oh dear!! I do have some challenges... hope I'm not too late adding them! But first...
