Happy Birthday Aubery!

Now I'm not too sure Aubery Bumblethorpe from Just INKlined is really enjoying his birthday too much - he seems to have a bit of a headache!!! Is it the family's singing of the birthday song, too many candles or just the attention he usually avoids - LOL??? But he's such a loveable rogue isn't he! You can get Aubery HERE.

This is such a great image for an older man's birthday - and you really can have a bit of fun with sentiments - although some of the ones my family and friends suggested would make the poor old guy blush - LOL. The one thing I find hard with men's cards is the embellishment - I LOVE heaping on flowers but I think that really WOULD upset Aubery! I hope he doesn't mind the few rhinestones I added - they ARE black!!!!

I used K&Company DP, a computer generated sentiment and my spellbinders frame die. I've used crystall effects to add "lenses" to his glasses.

He looks a bit like Santa LOL...maybe it was the singing of the birthday song or the blowing out of the candles :D
