Simon Says...Shabby Chic

It's my eldest boy's birthday tomorrow so I've made him a card using the best little boy stamp I have seen yet from Squiggle Stamps - complete with sentiment too, I just love this image, cute but definitely not girly! Why oh why did I colour the balloon orange though? It should have been red *kneels on floor - arms upwards, outstretched and wails...."NOOOOOOooooooooooo!!"*

Ahem...sorry about that... I am entering this card for Simon Says Stamp shabby chic challenge this week, the camera doesn't pick it up that well but the paper is distressed - honest!!

Thanks for visiting...
